Three Capes Track special offer


The centenary of national parks in Tasmania is being celebrated with a special offer to walk the Three Capes Track for only $250 per person.

Tasmania is celebrating 100 years since Mount Field and Freycinet national parks were reserved in August 1916, and to celebrate that milestone, walkers are invited to experience the Three Capes Track at this special price between 15 July and 31 August 2016.

This is a great opportunity for people to see what the Three Capes buzz is all about and to experience the track during winter, which is a great time to walk the track.

The centenary is about celebrating the power of our parks as an asset that we can all be proud of, and the Three Capes Track is one of the most powerful experiences people can have.

We know that 94 per cent of Three Capes walkers have rated the experience as ‘one of the best things they had done in their life, or the past 12 months’, which is a very strong endorsement.

At only $250, this is nearly half the standard price of $495 for adults so it is a very special offer that is valid for only a short period of time.
