Tarkine Drive visitor facility upgrades


A tender has been advertised for upgrades to visitor sites on the Tarkine Drive.

Visitor facilities at Julius River and Milkshake Hill will be upgraded to improve the visitor experience as a result of a $500,000 investment by the Tasmanian Government.

At Julius River, picnic facilities will be upgraded, track maintenance will be carried out on the Short River Walk and a carpark assessment will be undertaken.

At Milkshake Hills, the picnic shelter roof will be replaced and interpretive signage installed.

The $500,000 investment into these visitor service site upgrades is part of a $2 million commitment by the government for the upgrade of Sumac Road on the Tarkine Drive route.

The tender for these works is now being advertised, with works expected to be completed by March 2019.
