The magnificent mountain of Ben Lomond with its imposing and precipitous cliffs is visible over much of the northern midlands of Tasmania. The plateau is roughly 14 kilometres in length, 6 kilometres wide and is in excess of 1300 metres in height. A summit on the plateau named Legges Tor is the second highest point in Tasmania (1572 metres).

 

Ben Lomond offers a full range of Snow experiences, whether its skiing or snow boarding, tobogganing or even just seeing the snow the mountain has all you need. Ben Lomond Snow Field is Tasmania's only snowfield which offers some of the facilities expected of a contemporary operation. For the latest snow reports, where to stay, what to bring and even how to join up to one of the many lodges on the mountain visit benlomond.org.au.

The Ben Lomond National Park is invaluable for the conservation of the flora communities and species diversity of Tasmania's alpine areas. The area consists of an outstanding variety of glacial and periglacial features which are considered of national significance.
