Douglas-Apsley National Park Camp Sites
Douglas-Apsley National Park is mid-way up the east coast of Tasmania, about 2 1/4 hours from Launceston and slightly longer from Hobart. The Apsley Waterhole, at the southern end of the the park, is reached by taking the Rosedale Road of the Tasman Highway (A3) about 3km north of Bicheno.
There is a small bush camping area near the Apsley Waterhole, ten minutes walk from the carpark off Rosedale Road. For those walking the Leeaberra Track there are remote bush campsites near Heritage Falls and Tevelein Falls, both on the Douglas River. There is no charge for camping.
Outside the park there is commercial camping at Bicheno and at Lagoons Beach. Other accommodation is plentiful along the east coast.
