Track closure: Jane River Track
From 31/12/2019, last reviewed 3/1/2020

​​​​Jane River Track in the Franklin-Gordon Rivers Wild Rivers National Park has been closed until further notice as a precautionary measure to minimise potential risk from nearby fires should they flare up.​  


Track closure: Closed tracks due to 2018/19 fires
From 28/11/2019, last reviewed 3/1/2020

​​​The 2018/19 bushfires caused extensive damage to a number of walking tracks and the burnt track infrastructure poses a serious safety ​hazard. Fire damaged boardwalk and steps are also holding the soil in place in many locations, preventing erosion. Illegal access of burnt tracks will increase erosion and cause environmental degradation. 

Visitor safety and environmental protection are our priorities and fire affected areas will remain closed until they are safe for use.

The following tracks are closed. 

  • ​Mt Anne Circuit
  • Huon Track
  • Mount Picton Track
  • Farmhouse Creek Track
  • Eastern Arthur Range Traverse
  • Western Arthur Range Traverse - East of Moraine Kappa
  • McKays Track - East of Moraine Kappa
  • Rasselas Track
  • Lake Rhona Track
  • Adamsfield Track
  • Clearhill Track
  • Needles Track. 

A valid parks pass is required for entry to Tasmania's national parks.
