Caretakers Wanted For Fortescue Bay


The Parks and Wildlife Service is seeking tenders from people interested in providing caretaker services at Fortescue Bay on the Tasman Peninsula.

Labor member for Rumney, Lin Thorp, MLC said Fortescue Bay in the Tasman National Park is one of the State's most beautiful coastal campgrounds.

"The campground is popular with local residents and visitors who appreciate both the quality camping facilities, the scenic walks available nearby and the jetty for the boat owners," Mr Mooney said.

"The facilities at Fortescue Bay received a boost recently with the reconstruction of the jetty last year.

"Since the previous caretakers left in late June, Parks staff have been managing the campground and facilities and during the quiet winter period have taken the opportunity to tidy up the amenities blocks and make a number of improvements for campers.

"We are now seeking a year-round contract caretaker and this represents a unique opportunity for someone who enjoys providing a quality service to the locals and visitors who enjoy this beautiful location."

Tenders for the caretaking service close on Friday, 11 November 2005. Documents are available from internet at www.tenders.tas.gov.au

This initiative is part of the State Government's commitment to progressing Tasmania Together Goal 21 - Value, protect and conserve our natural and cultural heritage.
