Stage Three of Three Capes Track complete

29/01/2018

Stage Three of the award-winning Three Capes Track has now been completed. The Cape Raoul and Shipstern Bluff lookout tracks have been upgraded to a class 3 dry boot standard track consistent with the existing Three Capes walks and will be available for any walker with a valid Parks and Wildlife Service visitor pass.


This completes the Three Capes walking experience on the Tasman Peninsula and will complement the tracks currently available on the eastern side, as well as being an amazing day walk in its own right.


The Three Capes Track is one of Tasmania's key nature-based tourism experiences and more than 23,000 people have walked the track since it opened in December 2015.


Further upgrades are proposed to improve the track from Remarkable Cave to Mt Brown and Crescent Bay, subject to approval from the Commonwealth Government. The $2.8 million upgrade will take two years to complete and will add to the existing Three Capes experience, as well as further improving the range of great bushwalks on offer in the area.
