The viewing platform on the shore of Lake St Clair is being upgraded to improve disability access to one of the finest vistas of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.


The $57,000 project, funded by the Parks and Wildlife Service Tourism Infrastructure Fund (TIF) will realign the path to the platform and provide a ramp to the lakeshore, enabling mobility-impaired visitors to enjoy the spectacular views of Australia's deepest lake and surrounding mountains.


Work on the platform has begun and follows the installation of a new shower block at the Lake St Clair Visitor Centre.


It's great news for the thousands of walkers completing the Overland Track each year.
