Three Capes Track popularity growing

31/10/2017

With 19,000 walkers expected to have walked the track by mid-November, and strong forward bookings through summer, the Three Capes Track has been confirmed as the star of Tasmania's nature-based tourism experiences.


Bookings are completely sold out for all of November through to late January, and a total of 6,628 forward bookings have been received through to the end of August 2018.


Work is also on schedule to complete Stage Three that will upgrade the track to the third cape, Cape Raoul, and complete the Three Capes experience.


The Cape Raoul track work is around 75 per cent complete, with the works expected to be finished early in the new year.


Track work is also nearing completion on the Shipstern Bluff Track, with only minor modifcations to come, and upgrades to the Stormlea Road are expected to be completed by Christmas.


The completion of Stage Three will complement the existing walking experience operating on the eastern side of the Tasman Peninsula and provide walkers with the opportunity to experience all three capes, which is sure to attract even more tourists to the State to experience what will be one of the world's great bushwalks.
