Applies from 15/10/2021

​​In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and keep our community safe, all visitor centres and public facilities in national parks and reserves will be closed within the southern municipalities announced by the Tasmanian Government from 6pm, Friday 15 October until 6pm, Monday 18 October. 

Parks and reserves will remain open during the period of the lockdown for exercise purposes only. 

Visitors should ensure they follow COVID-19 safe practices including maintaining physical distancing while using parks and reserves to exercise. 

The PWS will contact any visitors who have booked to begin overnight walks during this time, including those walkers on the Three Capes Track Experience.
