Even better, the new guide also includes Tasmania’s 60 Great Short Walks, which will not only drive more tourists into our stunning natural areas, but will also encourage more Tasmanians to get out and experience the wonders in their own backyard.



The guide also includes a profile of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, multi-day bushwalks, mountain biking and our unique animals, and is available for sale for $4.95 from Parks and Wildlife Service visitor centres, most Tasmanian Visitor Information Centres, Spirit of Tasmania ships and Service Tasmania shops. It is also included free of charge as part of the purchase or renewal of an annual or two-year Parks’ pass.
