Visiting the Douglas-Apsley National Park and its popular turquoise waterhole is an absolute must when visiting Tasmania’s east coast during summer. While a short 10-minute walk and swim in the Apsley Waterhole is fantastic on its own, the area also plays host to the much more unique and challenging hiking experience; the Apsley Gorge Circuit.

This 4 hour, 8km walk begins with an easy graded walk through the largest dry sclerophyll forest in Tasmania and finishes with a challenging scramble past waterfalls and waterholes through deep river gullies.
