Safety alert: Mount Field - snow predicted in alpine area
Applies from 23/7/2021

​​​​Alpine snowfalls are predicted in the coming days at Mount Field National Park. The road conditions can change quickly on Lake Dobson Road to the alpine area.

Depending on the conditions of snow and ice the road may only be open to 4WDs (preferably with high road clearance) and 2WDs with snow chains. If snow continues to fall, the road may be periodically closed for clearing.

Please drive to the conditions as the roads can be very slippery. Patches of snow and ice can remain on the road throughout the day when the temperatures are low. The road status will be updated as conditions change. ​​

For road closure updates visit the Tasmania Police Community Alerts page, or phone Mount Field Visitor Centre on 6288 1149. ​​

The Mount Field Campground is situated inside the National Park's main entrance, 200 metres from the Visitor Information Centre.


This pleasant campground is set in the forest beside the pretty Tyenna River - just a few minutes walk from the Visitor Centre. There are 14 powered sites as well as a range of unpowered sites. Spaces are suitable for campervans and caravans as well as tents.

This location is part of the famous Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and is a Fuel Stove Only area. Fires are not permitted within the campground. There are however some designated fireplaces within the day use area where fires can sometimes be lit, unless fire bans are in place. Please seek clarification from staff.

The Mount Field Campground has excellent facilities, including a toilet and shower block with coin-operated washing machines and clothes driers, and a communal cooking shelter with free electric barbecues and sink with hot water.

Bookings are not taken for campsites and instead it is run on a first-in basis. For the best chance of finding a vacant site it is advised to arrive at the campground by mid-morning as checkout time is 10am. 

There is no overflow camping permitted, if the campground is full there are no alternative campgrounds within the National Park. A privately-run campground is located within five minutes' drive of the park entrance. Other alternative campsites can be found within the Southwest National Park and are all a 1.5 hour drive from Mount Field National Park.
