Safety alert: Limited access to parks and reservesFrom 8/5/2020, last reviewed 18/5/2020
From Monday 11 May, Tasmanian residents will be able to undertake exercise at national parks and reserves, including beaches in their local area. Residents should only use parks and reserves that they can walk, run or cycle to, or if this is not possible, can drive to within 30 kilometres of their place of residence.
Please check your Local Council for arrangements for lands managed by them. Please note that Wellington Park will re-open but the Pinnacle Road will remain closed to vehicle traffic.
Residents must still maintain and observe physical distancing rules, limit groups to 10 people, except for household members, and move on once they have completed their exercise. If carparks are full, please move on and return at another time.
This limited access to national parks and reserves follows the closure of all PWS reserved lands declared under the Nature Conservation Act 2002 on 26 March to prevent non-essential travel during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Visitor centres and campgrounds still remain closed until further notice.
