It is the only long distance (480km)
multi-use trail in Tasmania. The
experience is recreational,
cultural, historical and nature based.

It often passes through or close
to small towns, allowing travellers
to visit local attractions while using as
little or as much of the Trail as they
like and to take advantage of local
accommodation, hospitality and
specialist services.

It offers a variety of experiences
for all – from the most enthusiastic
long-distance traveller seeking a

challenge to those interested in
a shorter, more relaxing excursion.

Those taking longer treks should be
aware that they're likely to be faced
with sudden weather changes,
water crossings, varying surface
conditions and steep terrain.
Drinking water may be difficult to
find and access to phone reception
will not always be available.
The Tasmanian Trail Association
manages the Trail through a
volunteer structure with the very
active support of community
groups, local government bodies
and regional organisations.

Because the Trail caters for bike
riders and equestrians, it cannot
traverse National Parks. It relies
on support from Forestry
Tasmania, other land managers
and landowners for its pathway.

This website has been developed

Guidebook & keys
The Tasmanian Trail Guidebook gives users the information required to travel all, or part of, the Trail, and includes important advice about access onto some private land and conditions of use at campsites.
Several locked gates will be
encountered along the Trail and
a key is available to users. Detail on how a key can be obtained will be found in the guidebook.
