Ben Lomond National Park
Ben Lomond National Park is in Northeast Tasmania.
Ben Lomond is Tasmania's only downhill skiing area. It offers skiing from approximately July to September (check the snow report ) and day walks in summer.
Flora and fauna
According to Tasmania's Parks & Wildlife Service, Ben Lomond National Park is invaluable for the conservation of the flora communities and species diversity of Tasmania's alpine areas. 
Located 50km south-east of Launceston, Ben Lomond National Park is accessible via the Blessington Road (C401) near Upper Blessington. Wheel chains must be carried between June and September - they are not available on the mountain, but can be rented or purchased from outlets in major centres.
If travelling at night, please watch out for native animals!
Also, a shuttle bus service runs from the snowline to the top car park daily within season. The service starts from around 9.00am daily in season and is a great option if you prefer to leave the snow chains at home. (Adults $12.00 / Child/Concession $8.00).
