New guide to Tassie’s treasures

The Parks and Wildlife Service’s new Visitor Guide to Tasmania’s national parks and reserves is the perfect

Frenchmans Cap
companion to exploring Tasmania’s world-renowned national parks, reserves and historic sites.

The guide has been revamped to incorporate Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks and bushwalker safety information. It provides visitor information about access and facilities and includes a profile of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, multi-day bushwalks, mountain biking and our unique animals.

The guide is included free of charge as part of the purchase or renewal of an annual or two-year Parks Pass, and is also available for sale for $4.95 from Parks and Wildlife Service visitor centres, most Tasmanian Visitor Information Centres, Spirit of Tasmania ships and Service Tasmania shops.

The 120 page guide fits in the glovebox for handy reference, but it’s also available for free download at www.parks.tas.gov.au/publications
