International award for Three Capes Track

12/05/2017

The Three Capes Track has been recognised internationally, with the experience winning the International Planning and Design Award by American Trails at the International Trails Symposium in Dayton, Ohio.


American Trails is a non-profit trail advocacy body that provides leadership for sustainable trail planning, design and construction.


The award recognises an extraordinary walking track project, occurring outside the United States, which demonstrates innovative planning and design techniques, while making a positive contribution to a specific country or region of the world.


In 2007, when planning began for the Three Capes Track, the vision was to create Australia's premier coastal bushwalk, with the ambition that facilities would be world class.


Since opening in December 2015, Tasmania's award-winning Three Capes Track has been a huge hit with walkers, with a total of 15,517 (as at 27 April 2017) local, national and international visitors from all walks of life and capabilities having completed the new experience.


The Three Capes Track was awarded both Tasmania's and Australia's Best New Tourism Business for 2016. The cabins have also won awards for design and construction.


The International Trails Award validates the Three Capes Track world-class claim and is a product of which all Tasmanians can be proud.


It has demonstrated that sensitively designed tracks and facilities can be constructed in reserves without compromising environmental values.


It has also demonstrated that appropriate developments such as this can provide significant benefits to regional communities and help grow Tasmania's reputation as a world leader in ecotourism experiences.
