The full version of the Three Capes Track Economic Impact of Additional Day Walk Visitors is available for download as a PDF [188 KB].

A report on the economic impact of additional day walk visitors was released in February 2010. The focus of this research was to estimate the additional economic benefits that could occur for Tasmania (and specifically for the Tasman Peninsula region) as a result of additional visitors being attracted to the region to experience parts of the new track as day walks.

The report, prepared by KPMG, found that the Tasmanian economy could benefit by up to $188 million per annum and 1563 jobs by 2017 through increased day walk visitors as a result of the development of the Three Capes Track. The report also found that the Tasman Peninsula economy would benefit by up to $43.75 million annually and 323 jobs.

The Tourism Industry Council of Tasmania, Tourism Tasmania and Parks and Wildlife Service were joint funding partners of the study.
