Hartz Mountains is a national park in Tasmania (Australia), 55 km southwest of Hobart. The National Parks is usually covered with snow in winter, with access limited only to 4WDs. Only experienced walkers should walk the tracks (Lake Esperence - 90 Minutes Return and Hartz Peak - 4-5 hours return) in winter. When the snow melts in late spring the waterfalls that surround the park are beautiful and abundant in wildlife. It is one of 20 Tasmanian National Parks.
