Please be aware that many camping grounds, campsites, campgrounds
and camping locations Tasmania are located within National Parks,
meaning that whilst campsites may not incurr costs, National Park entry fees apply.
Please also note that dogs are not allowed
in national parks and most reserves. If travelling from mainland
Australia, please also be aware that many food items are prohibited
entry into Tasmania. In fact, Tasmania has very stringent quarantine
regulations aimed at helping Tasmania remain disease free
by ensuring that visitors don't entry Tasmania through air or
sea ports carrying or importing restricted items.
The introduction of a pest or disease into a production area can result in expensive
controls being implemented, loss of markets potentially costing
Tasmania millions of dollars. For more information on what you

Many Tasmanian campsites are located in areas prone to bushfire
during warmer summer months. Local regulations for use of open
fires should always be strickly adhered to and campfires should
always be extinguished using a bucket of water.
Small amounts of glowing embers can start bushfires that spread quickly.
Water cools the fire quicker; using sand or dirt only extinguishes
the fire but doesn't cool down the burning embers.
