New caretakers sought for Fortescue Bay


The Parks and Wildlife Service is seeking new caretakers at the popular Fortescue Bay campground in the Tasman National Park.

Parks and Wildlife Service Southern Region manager Anne Duncan says that following the departure of the previous caretakers on June 30, Parks staff will take over management of the campground and facilities while new caretakers are sought.

"We'd like to thank Tracey Harris and Steve Mundy who have been the contract caretakers at Fortescue Bay for the past six years," Anne said.

"We expect to advertise for new caretakers in the near future and in the meantime, PWS staff will take over management of the campground and facilities at Fortescue Bay, including bookings for the campground.

"During winter PWS staff will also undertake maintenance and preparation work for the busy summer season."
