Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area


Access map

The Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area is located in the far north-west of the State.

From the north:  The Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area begins just south of the township of Marrawah, where the C214 road takes you south toward Arthur River and beyond.

From the south:  Beginning at Corinna, the Western Explorer (C249) takes you up the eastern side of the reserve to the junction of the C214 which leads west to Couta Rocks on the coast.

At Corinna a vehicle barge crosses the Pieman River. The service operates on demand between 9am-5pm in winter and 9am-7pm in summer. Phone (03) 6446 1170 for details.

Conventional vehicles can travel along the main arterial roads of this region - from Corinna through to Couta Rocks, and from Marrawah through to Temma. The roads are gravel and their condition will vary.

There is no access for conventional vehicles to the southern part of the Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area.

Please drive carefully, as you are sharing the road with wildlife.
