Narawntapu National Park (formally known as Asbestos Range National Park) is a place of peace for people and wildlife alike. It stretches from the low coastal ranges to the long Bass Strait beaches, and includes an historic farm, a complex of inlets, small islands, headlands, wetlands, dunes and lagoons, all with an amazing variety of plants and animals.
Small quantities of asbestos, among other minerals, were once mined around the edges of the Asbestos Range, hence the name of the park.
Among the attractions of the park are the easily observed animals that come out in the evening to graze on the grasslands. Whether you're here for water activities or wildlife; bushwalking or beachcombing; picnicking or camping, you'll find Narawntapu a special place.
