Exciting new proposal for Tasmania's South East Cape


Award-winning local tourism operator Ian Johnstone can now progress a new project to lease and licence negotiations under the Tourism Opportunities in Tasmania's National Parks, Reserves and Crown Land procoess.

This proposal would allow the development of a South East Cape Walk where small groups of visitors will be led by experienced guides to the tip of Australia's southern most accessible point in the rugged Southwest National Park.

The Tasmanian Government has a goal to increase visitor overnight stays in regional areas by 70 per cent by 2022 and this project, if approved, will entice tourists to stay longer in the deep south of Tasmania while providing a welcome economic boost to local businesses.

This overnight walk will start from the renowned South Coast Track before heading off on an existing walking track to South East Cape and include an environmentally-friendly hut for overnight accommodation, located discreetly from view of other park users.
