Beautiful walks through pretty rugged landscape. Mostly boardwalks. Recommend the 1-1/2h (return trip time) walk to lake Esperance. Stunning views with a nice resting place at the lake. The water in the lake is clear and ready to drink

Not easily. Try the official park page, they give info on buses etc. At least you can get close, then try a long hike? Good luck! parks tas gov then Hartz then a link to public trans access
