Following advice from the Tasmania Department of Health and Tasmanian Government that our community should limit non-essential travel during the COVID-19 pandemic, the PWS has closed all national parks, reserves and campgrounds until further notice.
The PWS is calling on Tasmanians to support the national effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 and stay home during this 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.
