Barge access and times


he “Fatman” barge allows vehicles to travel from north or south across the Pieman River. It is the only cable driven vehicular barge in Tasmania.

The grand entry from the south into Corinna township by barge heralds your arrival into an oasis in the remote wilderness.

The barge operates between 9am and 7pm in the summer and 9am and 5pm outside daylight saving hours.

The crossing takes about ten minutes and the carrying capacity is 6.5 tonnes, with maximum vehicle measurements of 2.46 m wheel base and 2.50 m body width. The maximum combination wheel base is 9.0 m and the minimum caravan under body clearance 0.2 m.

If you have any questions about barge operations, or any other concerns about vehicle access to Corinna, please contact us.
