Facilities and walking tracks at Remarkable Cave to be upgraded

09/02/2019

Tenders open today for civil works at Remarkable Cave and walking track upgrades on the Remarkable Cave – Crescent Bay – Mt Brown Walking Track. 


These works will provide another reason for visitors to extend their stay on the Tasman Peninsula, they are part of the ongoing commitment to the Three Capes Walking experience and will provide new day walking options for visitors in the region. 


The Remarkable Cave site will get a complete facelift, new elevated pedestrian walkways will be installed, improvements will be made to vehicle parking, and there will be rehabilitation of the escarpment to protect the surrounding environment and improve sustainability.


Works will also include upgrades to 3.7km of walking track at Remarkable Cave and Crescent Bay and Mt Brown. Crescent Bay is a hidden gem on the Peninsula and this new track will make it more accessible, with Mt Brown as an exciting side trip. 


Due to these works, the Remarkable Cave site and the track from Remarkable Cave to Crescent Bay and Mt Brown is expected to be closed from 1 May – 1 October 2019 to ensure public safety. Work has been timed to avoid the peak visitor period. 


These upgrades will allow visitors to enjoy upgraded facilities and improved short and part-day walks to spectacular coastal locations in the area, while better protecting the environment as visitor numbers increase.


The work is jointly funded by the State and Commonwealth Governments. The tender documents are available at www.tenders.tas.gov.au 


Tenders for both projects close on Friday 8 March 2019.
