The Ben Lomond National Park is located in the northeast of the Australian state of Tasmania, about 31.25 mi (50 km) east of Launceston. The park has an area of 44934 acres (18,192 ha) and was established on 23 July 1947. It is classified by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area because it supports populations of the Flame Robin and of at least ten Tasmanian endemic bird species, for which it is a representative protected area in north-eastern Tasmania.

The namesake of the park is the mountain Ben Lomond, which is the second highest Tasmanian mountain after Mount Ossa. The highest peak of the mountain is actually named Legges Tor, but the term Ben Lomond is more commonly used. The mountain is one of the few skiing areas of Tasmania.
