Ben Lomond National Park
Wildflowers and rare grasses carpet the plateau in spring but it’s the winter-time ski season that gets Tasmanians and visitors excited about Ben Lomond. Tasmania’s only downhill skiing area, Ben Lomond has ski lifts, ski hire, ski lodge and licensed restaurant.
Year-round, keep your eyes alert for Tasmanian wildlife in the park, including Bennett’s wallabies, wombats, Forester kangaroos, quolls, potoroos and possums.
If you’re driving in winter, bring snow chains to scale the unsealed hairpin-bend road along the aptly named Jacob’s Ladder to the alpine ski village.
