Mt Schank Walking Trail

Mount Field National Park

National Parks are for all of us to enjoy. However, some areas can be a challenge, with difficult terrain in remote areas discouraging the less adventurous to visit. But these are sometimes the most pristine and biologically diverse places in our protected Parks system.
