Ben Lomond is located 50km south east of Launceston in Tasmania. Take the C401 (Blessington Road), turning off approximately 3.5km before Upper Blessington, following the signs to Ben Lomond Road. Please note that this is an unsealed road and care must be taken when making the ascent up the mountain.
The final 8km of the journey to Ben Lomond is 'Jacob's Ladder' a steep, winding section of road which has recently been extensively upgraded to cater for growing visitor numbers. During the winter months, from June to September the road is subject to icy conditions - most importantly, chains must be carried during this time and can be hired or purchased from a variety of outlets.
Entry into Ben Lomond National Park is subject to a National Parks Entry Fee which can be paid on the spot, or pre-purchased, click here for more information.
Please note visitors use the road at their own risk, Ben Lomond Alpine Resort PTY LTD is not responsible for visitors who ignore the requirements to fit or carry snow chains. Unfortunately due to liability and occupational health and safety issues, Ben Lomond Alpine Resort will not assist in vehicle recovery activities, except under an emergency situation at the vehicle operators expense.
