Hartz Mountains National Park

Access


View Larger Map

Hartz Mountains is 84 km south-west of Hobart. From Hobart, drive south on the A6 (Southern Outlet), following the signs to Huonville and Geeveston. In Geeveston turn right on the Arve Road (C632), which is clearly signposted for Hartz Mountains National Park. Much of the C632 is a winding, steep, but good quality sealed road. A sign marks the turn-off to the park. The last section of the road continues for 10.5 km and is unsealed and can sometimes be closed by snow. Check the local road conditions by phoning (03) 6264 8460 if in doubt.

Please be aware that when driving between sunset and sunrise you are sharing the road with wildlife.

Public transport and tours

Visitors wishing to use public transport or tours to access the park should visit our web page on Access to Tasmania's National Parks, Reserves and Walking Tracks.
