Welcome to Southwest National Park
The state’s largest national park is made up of remote, wild country: forests, mountains, grassy plains and seascapes. Home to both the Huon pine, which lives for 3000 years, and the swamp gum, the world’s tallest flowering plant, it also hosts about 300 species of lichen, moss and fern – some very rare. These festoon the rainforests, while the alpine meadows are replete with wildflowers and flowering shrubs. Through it all run wild rivers, their rapids tearing through deep gorges. Combining these sights with majestic Mt Anne, the jagged crest of the Western Arthur Range and the fang-like appearance of Australia's most dramatic mountain, Federation Peak, the park is irresistible to photographers, bushwalkers and nature enthusiasts.
