Input Sought on Mt Field Site Plan


The Parks and Wildlife Service is seeking public input into the development of a new site plan for the Russell Falls Visitor Services Zone.

The Minister for the Environment, Parks, Heritage and the Arts, Michelle O'Byrne, said the visitor services zone around Russell Falls has hosted Tasmanians and visitors to the State for more than 100 years.

"Russell Falls is one of our most enduring natural tourist destinations," Ms O'Byrne said.

"The oval, adjoining camping ground and picnic areas have been a favourite spot for local picnickers and tourists alike.

"The site plan preparation is an important opportunity to develop direction on the future management and development of visitor facilities."

An open house is being held at the Mt Field Visitor Centre from 4pm-8pm on Wednesday 10 December for people interested in the development of a new site plan.

Parks and Wildlife Service staff will be available to answer questions and record people's ideas. All interested members of the public are invited to attend.

A survey can also be filled in during the month of December, either on-line at www.parks.tas.gov.au, or by collecting a printed copy of the survey from Mount Field Visitors Centre.
