​The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service is inviting feedback on plans to construct a second lookout at Wineglass Bay at Freycinet National Park, which will improve the experience through improved circulation and management of visitors at peak times. 

Funded through the Tasmanian Government’s Improving State-wide Visitor Infrastructure program and the Federal Government’s commitment to the Freycinet Peninsula Master Plan 2019, the project involves a proposed loop extension to the existing lookout, carefully designed to blend into the landscape and reduce congestion. 

This project delivers on the Tasmanian Government’s commitment to improve the visitor experience and ensuring generations to come can enjoy the stunning natural beauty of Freycinet National Park. 

Once approved, it is hoped that work will be able to start in 2020. 

The new lookout is one of many projects identified in the Freycinet Peninsula Master Plan 2019, which aims to protect the natural and cultural assets, provide a place for the community to connect with the peninsula and maintain its mantle of an iconic visitor destination. Other initiatives include a new visitor gateway, improved wastewater and a network of transport connections.

The community is invited to have their say on the Wineglass Bay Second Lookout  by visiting the Have Your Say page.

Feedback on the Wineglass Bay second lookout RAA closes on Monday 27 April.
