Open day at Mt Field

THERE will be free entry and guided walks at Mt Field National Park this Saturday for World Parks Day. Environment, Parks and Heritage Minister Brian Wightman said Tasmanians would be able to visit the state’s national parks and reserves on Saturday for free.

“World Parks Day highlights the critical role that green space plays in the wellbeing of communities. World Parks Day activities will be held at Cradle Mountain, Lake St Clair, Hastings Caves and Thermal Springs, Freycinet, Mt Field, Maria Island, Narawntapu, the Tamar Island Wetlands Centre and Highfield Historic Site," Mr Wightman said.

"We’re hoping the increased visitation to the state’s national parks and reserves will continue, with flow-on effects of more visitors experiencing our world-class parks and reserves. I encourage all Tasmanians to take up the offer and visit one of the many places of outstanding natural and cultural beauty in this state by taking a walk or a picnic. Parks and reserves provide a place for people to take on physical challenges and also offer a haven for time out with family and friends,” he said.

At Mt Field this Satuday visitors will be able to enjoy guided walks with a park ranger to see Tasmania’s tall trees and waterfalls. Meet in the visitor centre foyer at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Warm and comfortable clothing is recommended. For information, phone 6288 1149.
