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, and the alpine meadows are replete with wildflowers and flowering shrubs. Through it all run wild rivers, their rapids tearing through deep gorges and their waterfalls plunging over cliffs. All of this, combined with majestic Mt Anne, the Frankland Range and the jagged crest of the Western Arthur Range, renders the park irresistible to photographers, bushwalkers and nature enthusiasts.
