Cradle Mountain Master Plan


Cradle Mountain is the iconic gateway to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and one of the sites that underpins Tasmania's brand as a global destination for nature based tourism.
The Cradle Mountain Master Visitor Experience Master Plan was developed to provide a strategic master plan to deliver revitalized visitor infrastructure at Cradle Mountain and to provide significant opportunities for private commercial investment.

The Tasmanian Government has committed $21.8 million from the 2017-18 State Budget to progress the implementation of the Cradle Mountain Master Plan, while the Australian Government has committed $1 million to develop the investment readiness of the project.

The Cradle Mountain Master Plan project is a joint initiative of the Department of State Growth and the Parks and Wildlife Service to provide significant improvements to the Cradle Mountain visitor experience.

The Parks and Wildlife Service is managing the delivery of the gateway/village centre infrastructure and improvements to the visitor experience at Dove Lake.

The Office of the Coordinator General is delivering the commercial investment opportunities.

Refer to the Project Update June 2017 for the latest progress.
