Just a reminder the at due to the COVID19 lockdown, all Tasmanian National Parks and Reserves are closed to camping and bushwalking until further notice. This follows advice from the Tasmania Department of Health and Tasmanian Government that Tasmanians should limit non-essential travel during the COVID-19 pandemic. The PWS took the move to close all national parks, reserves and campgrounds until further notice. The Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service and the Tasmanian Government is calling on Tasmanians to support the national effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 and stay home during this time – this will clear and we will be back walking again in no time.
From midnight Thursday 26 March, PWS is temporarily closing all national parks, reserves, campgrounds and facilities to recreational and tourism use. This means that all short walks, day walks, mountain biking, hunting, fishing, tours and camping are now closed to the public. Washrooms, day use facilities, showers and visitor centres are closed until further notice.
