Effective from Monday 11 May, residents of Tasmania are able to undertake exercise in Tassie national parks and reserves, including beaches in their local area. Residents can only use parks and reserves that they can walk, run or cycle to. If that is not possible, you are able to drive to a park or reserve if it is within 30 kilometres of your home. Rules are changing quickly, so please check local council arrangements for parks, playgrounds and reserves managed by them. Please note that whilst the Wellington Park has re-opened, the Pinnacle Road remains closed to vehicle traffic.
In being able to visit parks and reserves under these conditions, residents must still maintain and observe physical distancing rules, limit groups to 10 people, except for household members, and move on once they have completed their exercise.
This limited access to national parks and reserves follows the closure of all PWS reserved lands declared under the Nature Conservation Act 2002 on 26 March to prevent non-essential travel during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Visitor centres and campgrounds still remain closed until further notice.
