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

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.
