National Parks Pass

Although you don't need a parks permit to enter Tarraleah, you will need a valid entry permit when visiting Cradle Mountain, Mt Field and Tasmania's national parks. Visitors to the state have a number of different pass options available to them, the most cost effective being the Holiday Pass range. This pass covers entry into all of Tasmania’s national parks for up to two months, and also provides free use of the Cradle Mt shuttle bus.
