ENTRY fees to Tasmania’s natural wonders are being waived to encourage the community to celebrate the centenary of Tasmania’s national parks and share the wonder.
The free entry offer for the state’s 19 national parks will extend over the school holiday period from 24 September to 9 October.
It is an opportunity for Tasmanians to reconnect with their environmental icons, particularly Mount Field and Freycinet national parks, which were established 100 years ago.
Free entry is an opportunity for those who don’t normally visit national parks to explore the natural beauty of their nearest park and check out the abundant wildlife and unique flora.
For residents of the Glenorchy municipality, the closest national park is Mount Field National Park, which forms part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.
