The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service’s largest and most ambitious track project, the Three Capes Track, will be a world class, multi-day walking experience on the Tasman Peninsula along a track up to 82 km in length. The track will showcase Cape Raoul, Cape Pillar and Cape Hauy as well as stunning natural features and scenery including dolerite cliffs and ocean views.
Visitors will be offered two experiences: the majority will be independent walkers that book accommodation in public huts, and there will also be a commercially guided walk with separate private huts.
The Tasmanian and Australian Governments have committed $25.3 million to construct Stage 1 and 2 of the Three Capes Track; $12.8 million from the Tasmanian Government and $12.5 million from the Australian Government.
The Tasmanian Government will also invest $4 million towards Stage 3 of the Three Capes Track, and is seeking funding from the Australian Government.
It is proposed the first walkers will embark on the track in November 2015.
