Visitors Guide to Tasmania's National Parks

Tasmania's outstanding national park system offers visitors a wide choice of opportunities to discover spectacular landscapes, from highlands carved by glaciers to quiet, solitary beaches; from cool, silent rainforests to colourful, alpine wilderness wildflowers. Tasmania's 19 national parks encompass a diversity of unspoiled habitats and ecosystems which offer refuge to unique, and often ancient, plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth.

There is a park for every season, and a park for every person. Discover the natural and cultural values they protect and the enjoyment they offer with our online Visitors Guides (click on the national park you would like to find out more about) or read the official guide to Tasmania's national parks and reserves Visitors Guide to National Parks and Reserves [PDF 12.9MB].

  • dogs and other pets are not allowed in national parks.
  • many areas in Tasmania's national parks do not have rubbish bins available. Please be prepared to carry your rubbish back out of the park at the end of your stay.
