Tasmanians are invited to have their say on the Reserve Activity Assessment (RAA) to upgrade campsites and improve walking tracks within the Walls of Jerusalem National Park.
This level 3 RAA has been developed consistent with the Walls of Jerusalem Recreation Zone Plan, prepared by PWS in 2013. The RZP aims to deliver improved facilities to meet increasing visitor use, while protecting the Outstanding Universal Value of this park.
The RAA details the impacts and mitigation measures for a new group campsite at the existing Wild Dog Creek campsite with double tent platforms and a cooking area. The layout and configuration of sites is intended to improve the visitor experience for larger groups travelling together, while maintaining existing platforms for smaller groups.
The RAA also includes the construction of a new campsite at Dixons Kingdom. The new location to the south west of the current informal campsite will reduce impacts on sensitive mature Pencil Pine and highland grass communities and the heritage listed Dixons Kingdom Hut.
New toilet facilities will be constructed at Dixons Kingdom and Lake Adelaide.
There will also be walking track upgrades within Jaffa Vale, between Dixons Kingdom and Lake Ball. The Reserve Activity Assessment and accompanying specialist reports will are available on our Have Your Say
The community is invited to visit the website to find out more about the four year project and provide feedback until Monday 10 February.
Subject to all planning approvals, work is expected to begin early this year at the Wild Dog Creek campsite.
