Flinders Chase National Park Questions & Answers

Hobart, Australia

Hi. When you arrive at the visitor centre of Flinders Chase National Park to go bushwalking or hiking, is there a log book or journal there to write the date you visited, who you are, and which trail or section you intend to walk along? (Especially, when you are traveling and visiting by yourself) Are EPIRBs needed or available to borrow?

We were there in August and asked the same thing and were told it wasn't necessary, they would see our car. But the hikes we did (Ravine Hike and Snake Lagoon Hike) if something happened, I think it would have been overnight before anyone saw our car as you are generally fairly remote, depending upon your selected hike.

I think it is best to advise your accommodation which hike you are doing and what time you expect to be back.

Depending upon the time of year you are visiting, don't expect to see anyone else on the trails, we certainly didn't.

We had the same thought about taking an EPIRBs after we were on the trails and we didn't come across any hiring option. I think it's something we are going to invest in.

I would recommend you do carry a basic first aid kit, as you can be quite remote and phone signal is virtually non-existent.

When travelling through this area, we did not encounter any such log book. If any place, it would be at the entrance to the national park at the visitors centre.
