An hour-and-a-half’s drive from Hobart is a place rich in biodiversity and history that gives new meaning to the phrase ‘pretty as a picture’.

Tasmania’s Hartz Mountains National Park is a place on the edge. Drive here from Hobart and one minute you’re in the Huon Valley, and seemingly high in the mountains the next. It’s the final piece of the World Heritage-listed wilderness before the island settles into the tamer, settled south-east, making it pretty much a dividing line between wild Tasmania and mild Tasmania.
