Reserves

In addition to 19 national parks, the Parks and Wildlife Service manages over 800 other reserves within the State. These reserves offer a wide range of opportunities for visitors, from extended bushland walks to coastal camping, cave tours to easy walks to scenic waterfalls. Many reserves protect rare or endangered species of plants and animals and play an important role in maintaining the diversity of Tasmania's natural and cultural heritage.

National park fees do not apply to these reserves. Dogs and other pets are not allowed in most reserves. The listing below represents just a small sample of the more popular reserves. For a full description of the various categories of reserves, see our full listing.

Most reserves do not have rubbish bins or rubbish removal services. Please plan to carry your rubbish away with you at the end of your visit.
