Cradle Mountain Master Plan
Posted on by email@example.com
10 March 2016, the Cradle Coast Authority unveiled the Cradle Mountain Master Plan.
The Cradle Mountain Master Plan is a collaborative initiative between local government and the tourism industry that outlines potential future development which would be a catalyst for the growth of the State’s tourism sector and economy.
A reinvigorated Cradle Mountain visitor experience would attract an additional 59,000 visitors a year, resulting in over 102,000 more visitor nights, and provide a fiscal injection of more than $29M to the Tasmanian economy.
The key to the Master Plan is a suite of ‘hero experiences’ designed to complement Cradle Mountain’s unique wilderness environment including;
• A Cable Way that will provide all weather and mobility access to Dove Lake;
• A state of the art viewing shelter at Dove Lake which will remove the existing car park and restore the area to its natural state;
• Specially designed shelters and lookouts that integrate with the natural environment adjacent to the Dove Lake Walk; and
• A World Heritage Village concept that will showcase Cradle Mountain’s international significance with new Visitor Centre, restaurant, shops and entertainment area.
