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.
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 Recreational Driving Guide [PDF 12.4 Mb] 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.

If you plan to drive on the newly opened (25th Dec 2014) tracks south of Sea Devil Rivulet (the Pieman River Track) or visit the Interview Mine (the Interview Mine Track), you will need to apply for a Recreational Driver-Special Pass.
