Visitors returning to flood-affected sites

28/02/2017

Visitors are returning in droves to some of Tasmania's best natural tourism sites after devastating floods caused extensive damage last year.


More than 10,000 visitors have visited Marakoopa Cave since it re-opened to the public just before Christmas, with good visitation numbers also at Evercreech Regional Reserve and Liffey Falls.


Tasmania's iconic national parks and reserves underpin regional tourism and these numbers are great news for local businesses and the economy in regional areas.


The new lighting system at Marakoopa Cave features state of the art LED lights that enhance the natural features of the cave and have provided scope for expanded interpretation of the cave features.


At the Evercreech Regional Reserve near Mathinna in the North-east, a new 15 metre aluminium footbridge replaced the previous timber bridge, while the first major stage of the repairs to restore access to Liffey Falls were recently completed.


In further good news, bridges on the Brushy Lagoon Road near Westbury, damaged by the floods, will also be replaced. In order for these new, permanent bridges to be installed, access to the Brushy Lagoon Road will be closed from 27 February 2017 to 27 March 2017.
