Over Summer in Tasmania, the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service brings people together in the outdoors by offering a wide range of activities including searching for creatures in rock pools, weed-busting and wildlife walks at night.

Each year the program connects with app. 30,000 people across Tasmania.

The program has developed over the  36 years it has been operating –  the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service now partners with community groups to conduct activities.

It is hoped that this approach will develop a greater sense of custodianship in the National Parks of Tasmania  and encourage people to attend programs for social, health and educational reasons.

The 2014/2015 program is offering fly-fishing, storytelling, penguin adventures, challenging walks and beach yoga. Activities will be conducted at the following locations:

  • Arthur-Pieman Conservation Area
  • Northwest coast
  • Narawantapu National Park and the northern coast
  • Tamar Island Wetlands
  • Northeast coast
  • Bay of Fires Conservation Area
  • Freycinet National Park
  • Maria Island National Park
  • Tasman Peninsula
  • Bruny Island
