A St Mary's woman has survived crashing her car off a cliff overnight.
Emergency services were contacted by the 63-year-old woman's family after she had not arrived at Bicheno as planned.
The woman's car was located 40 minutes later about 100 metres down a heavily-wooded cliff face on a sweeping bend of Elephant Pass Road.
Tasmania Police Inspector Michael Johnston said emergency services descended the steep cliff face to the crashed vehicle.
"When rescuers reached the woman, she had self-exited the vehicle which was significantly damaged. She was safely stretchered up the cliff with a rope and pulley system," he said.
The woman received serious, but not life-threatening, head and spinal injuries.
Inspector Johnston said initial investigations revealed the woman lost control on a corner causing her car to collide with the wire rope safety barrier and roll down the cliff face.
