Improving the experience Freycinet National Park

Will Hodgman, Premier.

Our national parks and reserves are one of the key drivers of growth in our visitor economy, with close to half of our tourists saying they come here to see them.

The Tasmanian Government is investing to improve the visitor experience at Freycinet National Park with the construction of a shared use walking track between the Visitor Centre and the Wineglass Bay carpark.

The new track will allow visitors to walk or ride the track safely while enjoying the views along the way. Bike racks and seating will be installed along the way to allow visitors to pause and rest, take in the sights, and provide for a more enjoyable experience.

Tenders are being called to undertake the works, which will be broken down to two construction stages, the first of which will be from Ranger Creek to Honeymoon Bay and is expected to commence as soon as the tender process is finalised and be completed before the end of July 2019.

Tender documents are available at https://www.tenders.tas.gov.au/

Submissions close on Wednesday 20 March 2019 at 2.00pm Tasmanian time.
