All walking tracks at Tasman National Park now open


A bush fire last summer burnt part of the Tasman National Park around Fortescue Bay and Cape Pillar. The fire damaged a number of structures within the park, which led to the temporary closure of several walking tracks. All walking tracks which were damaged - Cape Pillar, Cape Hauy and Mt Fortescue - are now open to the public.

Walkers are advised that there are no longer boardwalks for much of the length of the tracks.

The Tasman Coastal Track between Fortescue Bay and Waterfall Bay was unaffected by the fire.

We thank you for your patience while repairs were made.
