NARAWNTAPU NATIONAL PARK

Previously named Asbestos Ranges National Park. Take the bottom road to the left at Green's Beach to this little visited national park.  Only 2 kilometres to the car park and another 300 metres easy walk to the West Head lookout.  A coastal walk continues back to Greens Beach, parallel with the road.

 

Access to Narawntapu National Park is from several points stretching from Green's Beach to  Baker's Beach to the west.  The park geographically separates the northern region of the state and the north-west region.  There is a coastal walk from the western end of Badger's Beach to Baker's Beach.  There is a diversion up a hill near Copper Cove providing commanding coastal views.  Baker's Beach abounds with wildlife.

 

Narawntapu National Park is at the 'end of the road' on the West Tamar.  A drive back along the West Tamar Highway to the Batman Bridge will take us to the East Tamar.

LEFT: COPPER COVE:  The cove is about an hour and a half (one way)  easy walk from Badger Head.  Bakers Beach is on the right with Mount Roland (near Sheffield) in the distance.  A road leads to the other end of Baker's Beach from the Frankford Highway.
