Many visitors come to Tasmania solely for the pleasure of experiencing our vast national parks.Walks vary in degrees of difficulty and cover a wide variety of forest types.

All National Parks have entry charges, ($10.00 per day or $30.00 for two months). If you have a vehicle with you, the charges are $20.00 and $50.00 respectively for up to eight (8) persons.

Most of the longer walks require walkers to register at Ranger stations before commencement.

Organised walks with guides and/or porters are available. Most camp out, so you can enjoy a visit from the local wildlife at your evening campsite (no crocodiles or bears!). Some companies offer comfortable bunks in their own huts.

Connections from air and sea ports to the start of the Overland Track are regular in the summer months. Travel from this track to the South Coast Track is also available.

NB: There is now a separate and additional fee ($100) to walk the Overland Track. More importantly only a limited number of walkers are allowed to commence the walk each day and the walk must be done from north to south. Consequently anyone wanting to do this walk MUST book a place in advance or risk being turned away. We can do this for you.

If you need bushwalking gear, there are great shopping facilities in Hobart and Launceston. It is also possible to hire much of the required equipment.

Storage of your other possessions can be arranged while you are on an extended walk.
