Redeveloped Lillico Beach penguin viewing platform

03/05/2018

The redevelopment of a popular penguin viewing platform has been completed by the Parks and Wildlife Service, providing a quality tourism attraction in Tasmania’s North-West.


The $245,000 project was funded by the Tourism Infrastructure in Parks program and is located at the Lillico Beach Conservation Area, west of Devonport.


The platform can now cater for more than 100 visitors during peak season following the demolition and replacement of the old treated pine structure.


The new viewing platform utilises modern materials include stainless steel rails, a fibreglass deck and eco-friendly recycled plastic and timber composite decked bridges.


Red LED lights have also been installed to improve visitor experiences in the dark, while causing minimal disturbance to the penguins.


The popularity of the penguin viewing experience continues to increase, attracting just under 10,000 visitors over the 2017/18 summer season.
