Funding for walking tracks

22/08/2014

The Tasmanian Government has committed funding totalling $6 million for the South Coast Track and the final stage of the Three Capes Track.


$2 million will be spent on upgrading the South Coast Track, from Melaleuca to Cockle Creek, to improve access to this spectacular natural asset. The funding will be used to upgrade existing infrastructure, do minor rerouting where the established tracks have become difficult to access, and provide safe access to beach areas.


The South Coast Track is already one of Tasmania's Great Bushwalks attracting approximately 1,500 walkers per year.


A further $4 million has been committed to contribute to the completion of the Three Capes Track.


The completed walk will take in dramatic vistas of the wild and remote sea cliffs in the Tasman National Park and will be one of the world's greatest coastal walking experiences.
