National Parks Pass

by largie Online Now Apr 6, 2008 at 8:55 PM

the Pass equates to good value in my mind, especially since we will be in tasmania for 3 weeks and intend on visiting many NP's! any opinions?
If we intend on using a rental vehicle, does the NP Pass sticker need to be attached? Can it be displayed in a prominent position?
Can anyone tell me the current prices to do the Gordon River cruise on the Lady Jane Franklin 2 and the West Coast Railway trip? Are both these activities recommended? Anymore highly recommended activities while we are holidaying in Tasmania?

    As a day pass costs22 for the vehicle and 11 per person and a holiday pass for eight weeks just56/22 it is clear that the holiday pass is the better deal, if you intend to visit several NP's and perhaps stay longer than a day in some of them.
