Open Day to Discuss Proposed Three Capes Track


The Parks and Wildlife Service is encouraging people who would like to know more about the proposed Three Capes Track on the Tasman Peninsula to attend an open day that will be held at Eaglehawk Neck this weekend.

Parks and Wildlife Service general manager Peter Mooney said that the open day is aimed at providing another opportunity for the public to find out more about the proposal and discuss any concerns with Parks staff.

"We've been seeking public input since the release of the Tasman National Park and Reserves Draft Management Plan 2008 earlier this month and this open day provides a further opportunity to comment," Mr Mooney said.

"The changes proposed to the Tasman National Park and Reserves Management Plan 2001 would allow for the further assessment and development of the Three Capes Track.

The Three Capes Track is proposed to be developed as a combined walking and water experience over six nights and five days.

Parks and Wildlife Service staff will be at the Eaglehawk Neck Hall tomorrow (Saturday, 23 February) between 10am and 5pm to discuss the proposal.

The plan is on public exhibition until March 11, 2008. It is available on the Parks and Wildlife Service website at www.parks.tas.gov.au and through Service Tasmania.
