Exciting times for Cradle Mountain


Tasmania is one of the jewels in Tasmania's crown of stunning natural locations.

The next step in the Cradle Mountain Master Plan project that will improve the visitor experience and ensure Cradle Mountain retains its reputation as a must see destination in Tasmania has been unveiled.

The visitor infrastructure, services and buildings for the Cradle Mountain area do not reflect the experience that many of our visitors to this area expect. In particular, the current visitor centre is insufficient to deal with the current visitor numbers or those forecast for the future.

The Hodgman Liberal Government committed $21.8 million in the 2017/18 Budget to progress the Cradle Mountain Master Plan implementation.

The key features of the upgrades include the construction of a new visitor centre, commercial services hub and village precincnt, and a new viewing shelter and viewing platform at Dove Lake as well as a plan for improved transportation within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

Visitation has been booming at Cradle Mountain in recent years as more and more tourists flock to the state to experience our extraordinary natural environment, and the upgrades willl attract even more tourists each year, putting money into the regional economy.
