The Tasmanian Government will invest $56.8 million for the development of essential infrastructure at the new visitor gateway and at Dove Lake.
The Gateway Precinct, which sits outside of the National Park and World Heritage Area, presents an opportunity to provide a unique visitor experience through partnership with private investment.
The government is now offering either a leasehold or a freehold option for the development of the envelope, within the gateway precinct, to facilitate the development of village and visitor infrastructure.
The right proponent will invest in the community, create local jobs and ensure the ongoing protection of the environmental and cultural values of the region.
The original call for EOI’s saw a number of high-quality proposals received, across either individual elements of the development or for the overall development.
Fit out of the new café and negotiations for a short term lease with a suitable operator are already underway and the government is also progressing discussions for a staff accommodation development.
The investment is aimed to increase investment in the Cradle Coast region, boosting the visitor economy and creating jobs.
With the freehold option now available, new proposals are sought for the Gateway Precinct with submissions to the agent Colliers International to close on 12 December 2019.
