Three Capes Track Closure

Find out more

​The Three Capes Track will be closed from 22 May - 4 June 2023 to enable PWS to undertake annual maintenance and planned burns to reduce the bushfire risk and prioritise public safety. 

The planned burn is part of a long-term program designed to protect and enhance the natural and cultural values across the Tasman National Park.

The closure applies to The Old Cape Pillar Track (inland route to Cape Pillar), Bare Knoll Campground and Three Capes Track (Denman’s Cove, Stinking Bay, Arthurs Peak).

Visitors will be able to access all other tracks within Tasman National Park during this time including Cape Hauy, Waterfall Bay Tracks (including Canoe Bay, Bivouac Bay and Tasman Trail), Crescent Bay Track, Mount Brown Track, Cape Raoul Track, Shipstern Bluff Track and Tunnel Bay Track. The Fortescue Bay campground remains open.

The closure of the Three Capes Track is undertaken each year and is part of the PWS risk mitigation strategy for walkers and infrastructure to ensure the Three Capes Track experience as Australia’s premier coastal walk is maintained.
