15/05/2017

Tasmania's parks and reserves are extraordinary and the Hodgman Liberal Government's Expression of Interest (EOI) process is allowing the world to experience it through sensitive and appropriate developments in our national parks and World Heritage areas.


Ray and Laura Becker of Cradle Country Adventures will now move forward with their planned world-class horse riding experience at Narawntapu National Park after signing a lease agreement.


The project will develop an activity base at Narawntapu National Park by extending the existing horse trails and other nature-based activities.


A world-class horse riding experience will be ofered to both experienced, international and local riders as well as novice riders wanting to experience a stunning coastal environment on horseback.


Cradle Country Adventures will utilise and adaptively renovate the old homestead at Springlawn to provide accommodation for their customers within the park, adding yet more appeal to the Narawntapu experience.


The addition of activities such as kayaking, beach fishing, nature and wildlife tours and bird watching, will provide a mix of activities to keep visitors in the area for extended periods of time.
