Tasmania’s Next Iconic Walk

The call is out to find Tasmania’s next world-class walking experience.

The Hodgman Liberal Government will invest up to $20 million to deliver Tasmania’s next iconic multi-day, hut-based walk, and submissions are now open to determine where it will be.

The Overland and Three Capes Tracks have captured the world’s attention and are a major drawcard for the increasing number of local and visiting walkers who want to experience our unrivalled wilderness.

Our plan is to deliver the next iconic walking experience in another region, and to  help make our visitors stay longer, see more of the state, and spend more while they are here.

The submissions process will give communities, tourism operators and anyone with an interest the opportunity to put forward their ideas.

Advertisements will be placed in papers this weekend seeking submissions on the Next Iconic Walk and submissions will be open until 24 November 2018.

Tasmania now has a strong reputation for providing high quality eco-tourism experiences, and we are planning to take it to the next level.
