Martha Lavinia Road restricted to 4WD vehicles

A popular road on King Island has deteriorated and now presents a potential risk to visitors. The Martha Lavinia Road is located on the north of the island and connects the main north-south arterial road with the northeast coast. It is a formed capped gravel road that is used to access two popular visitor sites; Pennys Lagoon and Lavinia Beach. The section of road beyond the Pennys Lagoon turnoff has developed large depressions that present a risk to two wheel drive cars. A management decision has been made to restrict the road between the Pennys Lagoon turnoff and Lavinia Beach to four wheel drive vehicles while a maintenance schedule for the road can be coordinated.

Damage to infrastructure - Ben Lomond National Park

Updated 16 May 2018

A fire overnight has caused extensive damage to the Ben Lomond Alpine Hotel and the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service day shelter (including public toilets) and connecting boardwalk.

The fire has had a significant impact on some services in the national park. The national park remains open, however for safety reasons some infrastructure is currently closed.

It is important for anyone planning a visit to the national park to be aware that services at the hotel have been affected as well as some other infrastructure and people need to plan their trip accordingly for the time being.

The fire caused significant damage to the Parks and Wildlife Service day shelter on the mountain as well as the connecting boardwalk to the shelter. For public safety reasons this infrastructure is closed until further notice. The closure means that no public toilet facilities are available at the ski field.

The Ben Lomond campground is the closest public toilet location, which is approximately eight kilometres from the village.

For enquiries please contact the Tamar Field Centre on 03 6336 5397.
