Summary of Wineglass Bay Carpark and Lookout Track Site Plan 2004

The Wineglass Bay Carpark and Lookout Track Site Plan 2004 can be downloaded as a PDF File (651 Kb).

Summary

This site plan covers proposed works to improve both the Wineglass Bay walker carpark and the track to Wineglass Bay lookout, including a new trackhead and lookout structure. The site is a critical component of the State’s tourism experience, and existing facilities are not able to cope with visitor demand. This plan first establishes a vision and development objectives for the site, followed by an examination of site values and the development of prescriptive measures to protect values or mitigate impact. The plan then presents specific development concepts including a proposed new, expanded carpark layout and a new (partial) looptrack to the lookout.
