Better camping facilities for the north-east


Campgrounds are being upgraded in east and north-east Tasmania over summer, in a big win for lovers of Tasmania's outdoors.

Twenty popular sites are being upgraded under the $835,000 investment. The sites stretch from the Waterhouse Conservation Area, east of Bridport, to the Mayfield Bay Conservation Area, south of Swansea.

The works include new or upgraded toilets, campsite fencing to protect campers and the surrounding environment, and road upgrades and bollards to improve access and show parking areas. Walking tracks and beach access points have been more clearly defined, and signage and interpretation has been improved. Visitors will notice significant improvements at: Cosy Corner North, Cosy Corner South, and Taylors Beach in the Bay of Fires Conservation Area; Lagoons Beach Conservation Area; Mayfield Bay Conservation Area; Friendly Beaches in the Freycinet National Park; and the Village Green and Brads in the Waterhouse Conservation Area.

Hybrid compositing toilet systems have been installed at several locations - in many cases replacing old pit toilets. That'll be welcome news to campers at Friendly Beaches and Cosy Corner North. There'll be more site works at several campsites between March and June 2013.
