Further upgrade to South Coast Track

05/01/2018

The South Coast Track is one of Tasmania's great bushwalks, and the completion of recent upgrades has significantly improved the user experience along the track before the start of the peak walking season.


The upgrades have resulted in a new track alignment that includes a footbridge to replace an 800 metre section of the track, resulting in a better experience for walkers and better protecting the dunes from Milford Creek to the Prion Bay exit on Wierah Hill.


These latest improvements build on the work already completed as part of the $2 million, four-year project for the South Coast Track. This includes the construction of a new boardwalk in the Deadmans Bay and Freney Lagoon area, new footbridges at Melaleuca Inlet and Moth Creek, replacement of boats and other upgrades at New River Lagoon, and track maintenance, improved toilet facilities, brush cutting and windfall clearing.
