The full version of the Draft Tasman National Park Management Plan 2016 can be downloaded as a PDF.

Tasman National Park is currently managed in accordance with the statutory management plan, the Tasman National Park and Reserves Management Plan 2011 (management plan).

The management plan is being altered to achieve the Tasmanian Government’s policy of realising the potential of Tasmania’s natural areas by broadening the range of exciting and unique tourism experiences on offer in our national parks and reserves. 

This draft management plan, if approved, will have the effect of altering the management plan to remove provisions that restrict helicopter landings on Tasman Island and allow for the consideration of recreational and tourism access on Tasman Island. 

Section 2 sets out background information about the proposed alterations.
