Port Davey Marine Reserve Commercial Visitor Guidelines

The full version of the Port Davey Marine Reserve Commercial Visitor Guidelines is available for download as a PDF [1 983 KB].

These guidelines aim to protect the values of this relatively undisturbed wilderness area of the Port Davey Marine Reserve / Melaleuca Visitor Services Site whilst allowing for controlled tourism and recreation access.

The guidelines apply to commercial operators in the Port Davey Marine Reserve, licensed under the National Parks and Reserves Management Act 2002. They include motorised and non-motorised vessel-based recreation and tourism operations and land tourism operations. (A vessel includes yachts, motorboats, kayaks, dinghies, inflatables and float planes.)

The guidelines do not apply to commercial fishing vessels unless involved in providing services as detailed under S38 of the National Parks and Reserves Management Act 2002. Onshore activities, often associated with commercial vessel operations, are also addressed in the guidelines.

These guidelines should be read in conjunction with the Port Davey Marine Reserve map and visitors’ guide, available for purchase on-line through the Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) website, Service Tasmania, or selected outdoor stores.
