Wild Rivers National Park Camp Sites

The Lyell Highway connects Hobart in the south-east of Tasmania with Queenstown in the west. It runs through the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.

From Hobart, travel west for 2 1/2 hours via the Lyell Highway, or south a similar distance from Launceston via Longford and Poatina on the Lakes Highway

Much of the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park is remote and rugged. However, along the Lyell Highway (which will take you through the heart of the park), there are a number of facilities available.

The Franklin River Nature Trail is a perfect spot to stop for a break. Picnic tables and toilet facilities are provided. In addition, there are a number of other excellent walks available at various points along the highway, including a boardwalked track to Nelson Falls.

Further west at the Collingwood River, basic campsites, a pit toilet and fireplaces are available. There is no charge for camping.
