Tenders advertised for Freycinet Master Plan

28/08/2017

Freycinet is one of the absolute jewels in Tasmania's crown, with locals and visitors flocking to the area in droves to experience one of the world's most stunning areas.


Visitation to Freycinet has increased to an expected 300,000 for 2017-18, which outlines the importance to the East Coast as tourists spend up in local tourism businesses, shops and eateries.


It is clear that Freycinet needs a clear investment strategy that will deliver for the entire Freycinet and Coles Bay region and a tender was advertised on the weekend for a consultant to develop the long-term master plan for the area.


The consultant will work with a steering committee comprised of the tourism industry, Local Government, State Government and the community to guide the development of the Master Plan to identify the necessary infrastructure upgrades to support current and future visitation.


It will consider everything from transport logistics and water suppply through to sewerage management, and this tender is another vital step in ensuring that we can continue to showcase the area and improve on what's on offer.
