PWS website says the tracks off Scott's peak road Including the Arthurs and mt Anne are still closed and likely to remain so for some time.

Can you share/confirm where you heard this?

EDIT.

So I saw on Facebook they are saying A-K is open.... personally I would wait to get confirmation by calling parks or go by the PWS website rather than going by social media.?

It's now on PWS website - https://www.parks.tas.gov.au/index.aspx?sys=News%20Article&intID=3916

The Hartz Mountain National Park, and the Huon and Edgar campgrounds on Scotts Peak Road are now open. The Western Arthur Range is open between Moraine A and K, returning to Scotts Peak only (beyond Moraine K - Arthurs Plains - has been heavily impacted). Lake Skinner, Mt Wedge, Port Davey Track, Frankland Range, Niggly Cave and Growling Swallet are now open.

Great. Port Davey Track is now open - when it's too cold and wet and the days are too short. Phurt!

At least if Hartz is open there's a chance for Adamsons and Esperance to be options soon.
