Three Capes Track is the star of Tasmania’s nature-based tourism experiences and I am very pleased to announce Stage Three of the award-winning walk has now been completed, Minister for Environment and Parks Elise Archer said.

 

This completes the Three Capes walking experience on the Tasman Peninsula and will complement the tracks currently available on the eastern side, as well as being an amazing day walk in its own right.

“Under the Hodgman Government, visitation is booming to our stunning natural areas, and the Three Capes Track has been essential in establishing Tasmania as one of the world’s top tourism destinations.”

“We know we need to continue the momentum, which is why we will upgrade the track from Remarkable Cave to Mt. Brown and Crescent Bay, subject to approval from the Commonwealth Government.”

$2.8 Million upgrade will take 2 years to complete and will add to the existing Three Capes experience, attracting even more tourists to the Tasman Peninsula to experience the range of great bushwalks on offer in the area.

Over 23,000 people have walked the Three Capes Track since it opened in December 2015, which is great news for businesses on the Tasman Peninsula that are reaping the benefits of the increased visitation.

“We have a plan for 70 % of visitors to stay overnight in our regional areas and to increase visitor spend by 50 % by 2022, and the completion of the third cape and the proposed new track will help achieve this and further build on our growing worldwide reputation for nature-based tourism.” Minister Archer said.

Cape Raoul and Shipstern Bluff lookout tracks have been upgraded to a class 3 dry boot standard track consistent with the existing Three Capes walks and will be available for any walker with a valid Parks and Wildlife Service visitor pass.
