The mountain is undoubtedly one of the most important tourist destinations in Tasmania with local, interstate and overseas visitors. It is estimated that at least 300,000 people visit the Park per year.

Historically, the area has been an important destination for locals and visitors, from the explorations of the early naturalists, to the hut culture in the late 1800s.

Today the Park means different things to different people. Locals testify to the rich meaning of the area, valuing it as a place for peace and perspective, an escape to nature, and a playground for outdoor activities.
