An improved South Coast Track experience
Track repair and construction work has been undertaken on the Buoy Creek Plains by a local track construction contractor in line with the Buy Local Policy and all of the toilets at major campsites have now been replaced with upgraded facilities.
These improvements build on the work already completed as part of a four-year $2 million project that has resulted in the construction of a new boardwalk in the Deadlmans Bay and Freney Lagoon area, new footbridges at Melalueca Inlet and Moth Creek, and replacement of boats and other upgrades at the New River Lagoon crossing.
The new works ensure the South Coast Track will continue to be a world class walking experience in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and is part of the Government's Tourism Infrastructure Funding.
The Tasmanian Government has a plan to attract 1.5 million visitors a year and Tasmania's award-winning national parks and bushwalks will help achieve this goal.
