Planning to visit the Arthur-Pieman?
Regular vehicles can drive on more than 130km of gravel and sealed roads to explore remote coastal communities, wild and windswept beaches, and the vast hinterland of this magnificent region.
Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area Recreational Driver Pass, DVD and Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area Recreational Driving Guide.
Visitors with recreational vehicles (4WD, quad bikes, trail bikes) have a further 80km of recreational vehicle tracks to explore. To drive on these tracks, you need a Recreational Driver Pass, which can be purchased from the online Parks Shop, in-person from a Service Tasmania outlet, or visit the Parks office at Arthur River. Your pass contributes to track maintenance, land management and staffing within the Arthur-Pieman.
Arthur Pieman Conservation Area permit package
With your pass purchase, you'll receive a complimentary Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area Driving Guide and a Recreational Driving DVD, presented by Nick Duigan. Together, the products provide essential driving safety information, detailed maps of the tracks available for you to explore, and interpretive notes on the cultural and natural features of the area.
Pieman River Track and Interview Mine Track are currently closed
Following a decision by the Federal Court on Tuesday December 23 2014, the three additional tracks proposed to be open to four wheel drive vehicles under a special pass will remain closed at this time.
The decision applies to tracks south of Sea Devil Rivulet located near Sandy Cape and includes the Pieman River Track and the Interview Mine Track.
Other tracks in the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area that have previously been open, remain open. We welcome visitors to this reserve that provides some of the best camping, fishing and 4WD opportunities in Tasmania.
Visitors planning to use these tracks should be aware that a Recreational Driver Pass is required to utilise these tracks. Drivers are also advised to read all safety and visitor information before visiting the area.
