- Cradle Mountain Cradle Mountain forms the northern end of the Cradle Mountain - Lake St Claire National park and is part of the Tasmanian World Heritage area. The jagged contours of Cradle Mountain epitomise the feel of a wild landscape, while ancient rainforest and alpine heathlands, buttongrass and deciduous beech trees provide a range of environments to explore. Wildlife abounds and you are sure to see some wallabies and wombats and more.
- Freycinet (Wineglass Bay) Freycinet is a national park on the East coast of Tasmania, Australia, 180 km southeast of Launceston. It occupies a large part of the Freycinet Peninsula that was named after French navigator Louis de Freycinet and also includes Schouten Island. Bordering the national park is the small settlement of Coles Bay, and the largest close town is Swansea. Freycinet contains part of the rugged Tasmanian coastline and includes the secluded Wineglass Bay, voted by several travel authorities as one of the world's ten best beaches. Famous features of the park include its red and pink granite formations and a series of jagged granite peaks in a line, called "The Hazards".
- Bay of Fires (St Helens) The Bay of Fires is a bay on the northeastern coast of Tasmania in Australia, extending from Binalong Bay to Eddystone Point. The bay was given its name in 1773 by Captain Tobias Furneaux in Adventure, who saw the fires of Aboriginal people on the beaches. The Bay of Fires is a region of white beaches, blue water and orange-hued granite (the colour of which is actually produced by a lichen). The northern section of the bay is part of Mount William National Park, the southern end is a conservation area. A wide range of activities can be pursued in the Bay of Fires area, including beach activities, bird watching, fishing, swimming and walking.
