Caretakers sought for Fortescue Bay campground


The Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) is seeking caretakers to operate the Fortescue Bay campground in the Tasman National Park. 

PWS Southern Region acting manager, Shane Breen said that Fortescue Bay is one of the major visitor sites within Tasman National Park.

“Fortescue Bay is one of the State’s most scenic campgrounds that is enjoyed by tourists, fishers, bushwalkers and is particularly popular with Tasmanian campers,” Mr Breen said.

The caretakers take bookings for the campground, provide visitor information, clean its facilities and collect fees. Caretakers are on site all year with designated time off from the site each week.

More than 40 camping sites are available and there is also a boat launching ramp and jetty.

Tender documents are available at www.tenders.tas.gov.au or by contacting ranger Luke Gadd at luke.gadd@parks.tas.gov.au or on 6214 8100.

Tenders close on 13 August 2010 at 4:00pm.
