Replacement of facilities at Lake Tahune


A tender has been advertised for the demolition and replacement of the hut and toilet facilities at Lake Tahune on the Frenchmans Cap walking track.

Located in the Franklin Gordon Wild Rivers National Park, the current facilities are at the end of their projected life, and improvements are necessary to meet forecast demand into the future.

The project will be funded through a number of sources including the Tourism Infrastructure Fund, a donation from Australian entrepreneur and philanthropist Dick Smith, as well as self-generated funding from the Parks and Wildlife Service.

The new hut will double the sleeping capacity at the site, providing accommodation for 24 walkers as well as two rangers. Additional deck area will provide a hardened surface around the hut for seating and cooking.

The upgrade of this hut will be a significant improvement to this very popular walk and improve the amenity and environmental outcomes.
