Draft Frenchmans Cap Recreation Zone Plan 2018

12/04/2018

The Parks and Wildlife Service has released the Draft Recreation Zone Plan 2018 for the Frenchmans Cap area. 


Feedback from the community is invited on the draft plan that will help guide discussion on future management of the area to ensure this walk continues to deliver high quality and sustainable experiences into the future.


The Frenchmans Cap Track is the fourth most-popular backcountry walking experience in Tasmania, after the Overland Track, Three Capes Track and the Walls of Jerusalem, with more than 1,800 people visiting annually. The challenging four-day wilderness walk is one of the best walking experiences in the country.


The purpose of the plan is to outline the values and management issues that need to be addressed in coming years, describing actions that aim to protect both the area's high conservation values and the visitor experience.


The Draft Frenchmans Cap Recreation Zone Plan is available at http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/index.aspx?base=48009 and public comments must be received by 26 May 2018.
