Tasmania's Next Iconic Walk

28/09/2018

The call is out to find Tasmania’s next world-class walking experience.


The Tasmanian Government will invest up to $20 million to deliver Tasmania’s next iconic multi-day, hut-based walk, and submissions are being called for to determine where it will be.


The Overland and Three Capes Tracks have captured the world’s attention and are a major drawcard for the increasing number of local and visiting walkers who want to experience our unrivalled wilderness.


The plan is to deliver the next iconic walking experience in another region, and to help make visitors stay longer and see more of the state while they are here.


The submissions process will give communities, tourism operators and anyone with an interest the opportunity to put forward their ideas.


Submissions for the Next Iconic Walk will officially open on Saturday 29 September and will be open until 24 November 2018.
