To make sure you have an enjoyable and safe time please read and follow the advice below.
Be well-equipped - A winch and recovery gear, such as a snatch strap with correctly rated shackles, are recommended for all tracks listed on this site. Carry a first aid kit. It is recommended that a UHF radio be carried in the vehicle. Check your spare wheel(s) is useable and that all tyre-changing tools are operational. Pack a tent and sleeping gear - even on day trips. Take a fuel-stove. Some tracks are within Fuel Stove Only Areas, meaning that campfires are not permitted. Take clothing for all weather conditions – the weather in Tasmania can change dramatically within hours, so make sure you have warm waterproof clothing with you. Always carry a map covering the area you are travelling in.
Carry extra supplies – Be prepared for the possibility of being stranded on the track as the result of changing weather and track conditions or vehicle break-down. Carry extra food and water. If you need to use water from creeks it is recommended that it be boiled for 3 minutes before use, regardless of how clean it looks.
Be informed – Contact the local Ranger, or four wheel drive club, to discuss track conditions. Check the weather forecasts before you go. Keep up to date with fire warnings and fire bans.
Tell someone - Leave trip details with someone who is willing to contact Police if your party is overdue. Make sure you notify this person when you return.
Go with a friend - Always travel with at least one other vehicle. Some of the tracks listed here are remote, with poor or no mobile phone reception, so help may be some time away.
