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.
Day (24 hour) passes are available from; from self-registration boxes at the entry station prior to the Carr Villa Road turnoff, at the information booth adjacent to the Legg Tor Public Shelter, and from the PWS Online Shop here.
Annual parks passes can only be purchased prior to arrival from Service Tasmania shops and PWS visitor centres.
Motorists travelling to Ben Lomond are reminded that it is compulsory to carry chains from June to September. Conditions on the mountain change very quickly and motorists arriving in fine weather can face a dangerous descent on Jacobs Ladder.
It’s important that visitors drive to conditions, carry chains and fit the chains where directed by signage or PWS staff. The requirement for chains includes both two-wheel and four-wheel drive vehicles.
