10.5.22 Campsite Liffey
Please note that the old school house is not available to users of the Trail. Camping in the grounds is permitted (guidebook page 31, point 20.9) and the toilet is available. Discussions are being had with the management committee.
7.2.22 Guidebook update
Please note that there is a newer version of the Guidebook on our website. Changes involve the contact details for the Bushy Park Showground Campsite (p.56) and changes to the section of the track (p.55 and Map 12). Please ensure you are using the version labeled February 2022.
7.1.22 Changes to Bushy Park Showground contact
For those wishing to camp at Busy Park Showgrounds please note that the previous contact John has retired from the role. The new contact for access is Neville Fenton who can be contacted 0417015921. He is usually home from work at 4pm so he will be available to assist members with camping at the showgrounds after this time each day. Please contact Neville in advance of your arrival and not just on the day you wish to camp. The caretaker has also asked that users be advised the there is a fee of $5 pp/pn.
1.4.21 Guidebook change for horse riders
In the 'Before your start' section on page 18, change the phone number to 03 6426 4444.
Recent challenges have left the Sheffield campsite without normal toilet facilities. The 'red brick toilet' mentioned in the guidebook is undergoing redevelopment and has been painted. The Tasmanian Trail have now provided a temporary toilet for trail members.
The toilet is located opposite the campsite in the right back corner of the horse yard. A key is required to access the horse yard and to also access the toilet. Please be courteous and leave the toilets in a tidy state for the next Tasmanian Trail member.
As feedback is key to advising us when maintenance is required, please let us know if something needs tending to.
A holding yard for horses has now been erected at the campsite in New Norfolk. It is electric fence ready requiring only an energiser to make operational. A white sight wire is included.
The adjacent arenas are not to be used for any purpose.
A boom gate has been installed on Pillies Road in between points 20.9 and 21.4 on page 51 of the guidebook.
The Cluan Tier (see Stage 5, page 31) has been closed due to a land owner locking gates. The route of the Trail has been moved and is described in the updated guidebook.
4.10.19 Camping at Bracknell
The local Council has decided that only self-contained vehicles can overnight on the riverside reserve at Bracknell (refer to p.33 of the guidebook, point 36.5). The only alternative accomodation for Trail users in the area is behind the Hotel, by arrangement, or at the Old School House at Liffey.
