The park is about 2 1/2 to 3 hours from either Hobart or Launceston. Turn off the Tasman Highway (A3) (which runs down the east coast of Tasmania) onto the Coles Bay Road (C302) 12 km south of Bicheno. (The turnoff to the Friendly Beaches section of the park is via a gravel road about 2 km after leaving the highway).
The main park entrance and visitor reception are just after Coles Bay township about 30km from the highway on a good quality sealed road.
Please take care when driving between sunset and sunrise as you are sharing the road with wildlife.
