Tasmanian National Parks Entry Fees

A valid park entry permit is required for entry to Tasmania's national parks

A range of national park passes lets you choose the best way to get out and experience Tasmania's world-class national parks.

Visitors to the state have a number of different pass options available to them, the most cost effective being the Holiday Pass range. This pass covers entry into all of Tasmania’s national parks for up to two months, and also provides free use of the Cradle Mt shuttle bus.

Residents or regular visitors to the State may find that the Annual or Two Year Parks Pass options are more economical. These passes cover entry for up to four vehicles (car, boat, plane and motor bike), as long as they are all registered at the one pass holder's address.
