Located along the beautiful northern coast is the seaside town of Ulverstone. With an abundance of coastal paths perfect for cycling or walking, picnic spots with stunning views, safe swimming beaches, playgrounds and active birdlife, Ulverstone is the perfect family-friendly destination.
Explore the town and check out the local cafes, restaurants, coffee shops and galleries that feature the work of local artisans. A visit to the quirky zig-zag gardens in Maud Street is also a must and offers the perfect location to soak in the panoramic views of the town, including the picturesque Leven River.
Take a step back in time and wander through the Ulverstone History Museum where you’ll discover artefacts and tools from Tasmania’s earliest settlers. On the banks of the Leven River, you’ll also find the various war memorials commemorating our fallen soldiers – Anzac Park, Bicentennial Park and the iconic Ulverstone Clock Tower.
Nearby in Gunns Plains you can find Tasmania’s largest collection of wildlife at Wings Wildlife Park and Gunns Plains Caves which is open daily for exploring the underground creek, unique wildlife and fascinating stalactites and stalagmites.
