General Information:

C142 is the former Bass Highway alignment through the Ulverstone area on Tasmania's north coast and is part of the Great Nature Trail themed tourist drive.

The route features a bridge over the River Leven and is mostly undivided for most of its length, passing through residential, light industrial and commercial areas. It serves a very rich farming district and is the main tourist access route to Leven Canyon, a fairly spectacular state park including the very deep gorge of the Leven River. 2
