Published on 25 Jun 2016

With the devastating floods that impacted Tasmania in June 2016, a number of roads and hiking tracks are not safe to travel on. With some roads and bridges washed away, along with land slides over known hiking tracks, it is recommended that all travellers to Tasmania's wilderness check the Parks and Wildlife website for the lasted updates with regards to known closures and re-openings. In all cases, it is best to check with local rangers for your own safety. Office locations can be found at the Office locations and contacts page on the Parks & Wildlife website
