It's about two and a half hours drive from Hobart.
You need a permit for all of Tasmania's National Parks. They can be bought at the national park visitor centre at the park entrance, and there are several different options from a day pass for just this one national park to a pass that is valid for an entire year and includes all National Parks of Tasmania.
The fees are shown below (currency is in Australian dollar):
Daily Pass: Per vehicle (up to 8 people): $20 Per person: $10
Please note that you have to pay for per person and for a vehicle. For example, if a family of four wants to enter with one car, they will have to pay $20 for the vehicle, and $40 for four people, in total $60.
