​​Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) will soon be undertaking works to help improve the visitor experience on some of Tasmania’s most iconic overnight walks in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. 

PWS has awarded a contract to AJR Construct and work will start later this month replacing the toilets at Pelion Hut on the Overland Track in the Cradle MountainLake St Clair National Park and at Lake Vera on the Frenchmans Cap Track in the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park. 

The works will take approximately three months to complete, including sections of the toilet infrastructure that will be built off site and flown into the parks. 

Walker access to existing toilets, huts and camping platforms will not be affected. Works will aim to keep impacts on the walker experience to a minimum, though some construction noise when works are taking place will be unavoidable. 

Once complete, the new toilets will provide a modern remote toilet system, benefiting walkers visiting the areas and ensuring the local environment is protected. 

The project is expected to be complete by the end of July 2023.
