Freycinet Lodge Expansion

Matthew Groom, Minister for State Growth

11 July 2017

Tasmania's national parks are genuinely world class and the Hodgman Liberal Government's policy to attract investment for new tourism experiences in our natural areas is ensuring that they continue to attract visitors from around the world in record numbers. I am very pleased that work has now commenced for the redevelopment at the award-winning Freycinet Lodge that will help attract even more tourists to the beautiful East Coast of Tasmania.

RACT was one of the first companies to take advantage of development opportunities under the Government's wilderness tourism EOI process. Today's announcement follows extensive consultation with the local community which has been important in ensuring that the development aligns with community expectations.

It's a great example of new world class investment in our iconic national parks that will help further reinforce Tasmania's growing reputation as a leader in eco-tourism globally.
