Set 1,300 metres above sea level on a large plateau, is
the Ben Lomond National Park. As well as being Tasmania’s
premier downhill skifield, it is also its largest single
alpine area, with spectacular walking trails, flora and
fauna. The Jacobs ladder Lookout provides spectacular view
of the rock formations, Flinders Island and Strickland
There is a small alpine village with a variety of
facilities and accommodation is also located near the
skifields. Rough bush camping on the plateau is also an
option for the adventurous.
Remember, that this is an alpine park and even in summer,
temperatures can fall below zero. Visitors should bring warm
and waterproof clothing, including gloves. Waterproof
footwear is also advisable, as well as sunscreen and a hat.
