Have Your say on – Draft Dial Range Recreation Management Plan ​

The Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) is calling on the community to provide feedback on an updated recreation management plan for the Dial Range in north-west Tasmania.

The draft Dial Range Recreation Management Plan has been developed following stakeholder consultation in 2020. It includes strategies to protect the reserve's natural and cultural values, as well as encourage and improve recreational activities for visitors.

The Dial Range attracts a diverse range of users from mountain bike riders, to walkers, hikers, horse riders and those undertaking natural studies. It is also popular for recreational vehicle use including trail bikes, all-terrain vehicles, and four-wheel drives.

Many of these clubs and organisations contribute to the management of recreation facilities including walking and mountain bike trails. 

The Dial Range is also a prominent natural feature of the north-west coast and important attraction for local businesses.

The area includes land managed by the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS), Central Coast Council (CCC) and Sustainable Timber Tasmania (STT). The draft plan details different recreation activities available across the land tenures. The recreation management plan, which is jointly funded between the PWS and Council, will replace the current plan which was created in 2000.

To view the draft plan and provide feedback visit the PWS website Have Your Say page

Feedback closes on 5pm on Wednesday 10 November.​​​
