Mt Field National Park

Access


View Larger Map

Mt Field National Park is just over one hour's drive from Hobart via New Norfolk. From Hobart, take the Brooker Highway (A10) north-west to New Norfolk. After New Norfolk you can follow the road on either side of the Derwent River (the A10 or B62) until you reach Westerway. From there it is a short drive along a winding bitumen road to the small township of National Park and the clearly marked entrance to Mt Field National Park.

The Lake Dobson carpark is up a further 16km of winding gravel road. Due to snow conditions, vehicles using this road may require chains; at times the road may be closed. Phone 6288 1319 for information on road conditions.

Please be aware that when driving between sunset and sunrise you are sharing the road with wildlife.

Public transport and tours
