Waterfall Bay walk, Fortescue Bay campground South East Tasmania close Eaglehawk Neck and Port Arthur.
Seagers Lookout is a popular bushwalk at Mt Field, as a sidetrack to the Mt Field East track and that leaves from fairly close to Lake Dobson. Keep an eye out for a small car park on your left as you head towards Lake Dobson from the Mt Field Visitor Information Centre. On a clear day, Seagers Lookout offers great views from a rocky cliff to Tasmania's southwest wilderness. The walk is uphill and relatively easy but during Winter the ground can be thick with ice and care should be taken, especially with small children or anyone with mobility issues. The track starts out with some duckboard, but most of the walk is on a reasonably well-formed track, and near the top across large rocks. The Seagers Lookout Walk isn't well marked along the route, and even though it is a short walk take care in cloudy, foggy, and rainy weather as it's still possible to get lost. While in this area, the 10-minute return Woodland Walk near Lake Fenton is worthy of also completing.
To access, when you dive into the Mt Field National Park, take Lake Dobson Road that heads up the mountain. Please note this road is very narrow in parts, and is subject to frost, snow, and ice and is regularly closed during Winter due to snow. Lake Dobson Road takes you to the Sub-alpine area (including access to Government Huts Mt Field) - you know when you have reached this zone when you see the Woodland Walk.
