Three Capes Track special winter offer

27/04/2017

Tasmania's award-winning Three Capes Track has been a huge hit with walkers, with a total of 14,495 local, national and international visitors since opening in December 2015.


To celebrate the track's success, the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service is encouraging more people to experience the walk with a special offer.


Three Capes is open year-round, and during winter the warm communal cabins provide a welcoming sactuary to cook hot meals and socialise with fellow travellers after a day of exploring Tasmania's scenic coastal landscape.


Between 1-31 August, a special promotional price of only $360 will be available for all walkers (adults, children and concessions), a saving of more than 25 per cent on the standard adult price of $495.


This is a great opportunity for people to see firsthand why Three Capes is an award-winning walk of which all Tasmanians can be proud.


The Three Capes Track continues to deliver benefits to the Tasman community, stimulating employment and boosting the amount of nights walkers spend on the peninsula, with about one-third of walkers staying at least one extra night.
