The Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area (APCA) in north-west Tasmania is a popular place to explore for four-wheel-drive and motorcycle enthusiasts. 

One of the most popular tracks, the Sandy Cape track, provides outstanding coastal scenery and beautiful camping spots. 

For the first time in six years, the price of the APCA recreational driver passes​ passes will increase by a few dollars from 1 January 2021. 

The 12 month pass will increase by $5 to $55 and still represents good value for Tasmanians who visit the APCA multiple times during the year. 

Much of the revenue generated through the passes goes towards maintenance works in the APCA.

Each person who purchases an APCA recreational driver pass is provided with the Arthur-Pieman Recreational Driving Guide which contains detailed maps of vehicle tracks and routes. 

This includes important information on preparing for the trip, safe driving tips, facilities within the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area, and the natural and cultural heritage of the reserve.
