Explore Three Capes this August

12/07/2018

Tasmania's award-winning Three Capes Track has been a runaway hit with walkers, with more than 28,000 local, national and international visitors completing it since it opened in December 2015.


To celebrate the track's success, the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service is encouraging even more people to experience the walk this August with a special offer.


In August access fees will be reduced to only $360 for all walkers (adults, children and concessions), a saving of more than 25 per cent on the standard adult price.


Three Capes is open year-round, and during winter the warm communal cabins provide a welcoming sanctuary to cook hot meals and socialise with fellow travellers after a day of exploring Tasmania's stunning coastal landscape.


The Three Capes Track continues to deliver benefits to the Tasmanian community, stimulating employment and boosting the amount of nights walkers spend on the peninsula, with about one-third of walkers staying at least one extra night.


This is a great opportunity for people to see firsthand why the Three Capes Track is an award-winning walk of which all Tasmanians can be proud. Bookings can be made at Three Capes Track
