Looking for that off-road adventure, away from everything? Check out these Tasman Holiday Parks, which are perfectly positioned for you to explore mother nature on foot.
Tasman’s Serpentine Falls
Only 50 minutes south of Perth, the town of Serpentine has wonderful natural attractions that will give you plenty of options to stretch the legs and see spectacular scenery while you’re at it.
Serpentine Falls are the central feature of the surrounding Serpentine National Park and are only a 2-kilometre walk when you stay at Tasman Holiday Parks – Serpentine Falls. If you prefer to drive, there is car parking available and you can take a picnic lunch and enjoy a whole day at this serene location.
At the falls you can explore walking trails that lead to viewing platforms, or longer trails that take anything from a couple of hours to half a day to complete. The falls are a popular swimming area in the summer months and a spectacular sight all year round.
Tasman’s Fraser Coast
It’s only a short walk from this park to the esplanade and Torquay beach in Harvey Bay where you can enjoy a number of cafes, restaurants and shops as you stroll along. In fact, there is a paved pedestrian and bike path that runs for 17 kilometres along the esplanade where you can take in views of the beach and bay and find some great picnic spots along the way.
If you’re visiting between July and October, be sure to keep an eye out for whales too as they cruise along this part of the coast. At any time of the year, you can take a walk on the Urangan Pier which stretches for almost a kilometre into the ocean. At the end you may be rewarded with the chance to see schools of fish, stingrays or pods of dolphins, and enjoy sweeping views of the Hervey Bay beachfront. It’s also an ideal spot to watch surfers, kite surfers and windsurfers when conditions are right.
Tasman’s Lake Mulwala
This park is set in natural bushland and sits on the banks of Lake Mulwala, a man-made reservoir with a weir across the Murray River. Next door you’ll find Kyffins Reserve with a kilometre of shoreline where you can wet a line or take a number of walking and cycling tracks.
Walking tracks will take you around the lake, into town and even take you to the other side of the lake, to the twin town of Yarrawonga in Victoria. In Yarrawonga you’ll find more walks to take in the foreshore and wetlands where you can see the fauna and flora of the area
