Reduced fees for Three Capes Track

Find out more

To encourage Tasmanians to explore their own backyard, the fee to explore the Tasman Peninsula on the four-day Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service’s (PWS) Three Capes Track Experience has been discounted.  

The discount is one of many initiatives running as part of Tourism Tasmania’s Make Yourself At Home campaign, to inspire Tasmanians to holiday at home safely.

The discount for the four-day 48 kilometre trek will apply from 19 August to 30 September.

Designed to cater for a broad range of ages and abilities, the Three Capes Track Experience is an ideal walk for those who have not undertaken many overnight walks in the past, along with seasoned walkers. 

It is hoped the fee reduction to walk the Three Capes Track will be an incentive for the community to experience the cliff-hugging wildness of Australia's far south-east.

Each journey starts at the World-Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site, followed by an eco-cruise with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys. At the end of each day, walkers can relax and enjoy the staggering views, before a comfortable night’s sleep.  Each overnight hut includes separate buildings for eating, drinking and dining and toilets less than a few minutes’ walk away. There are pellet heaters to keep walkers warm at night, although thermals are recommended.

PWS has put in place COVID-19 safe practices to ensure the safety of walkers.

Those wishing to take advantage of the 27 per cent discount off the usual adult fee bringing the total cost to $360 can book online at www.threecapestrack.com.au.

The discount to the Three Capes Track follows the announcement that fees will be reduced to walk the Overland Track​ from October to December.
