Tasmania is blessed with plenty of coastline – and most of us choose to live by the water. Whether it’s our highland lakes, wild rivers or rugged coastlines, when you’re enjoying these areas it’s important to be vigilant. We want you to enjoy our spectacular waterways, but always with care. To learn more about waterway safety in Tasmania, check out the MAST website.
While serious bushfire events are few and far between, they can spring up quickly in the summer months. Travellers should check the TAS Fire Service or TasALERT websites. Tune in to ABC Local Radio for information about bushfires and take careful note of instructions.
