Premier opens National Park cabin development

THE first stage of a cabin development on the edge of Mt Field National Park was declared open by Premier Jeremy Rockliff earlier today (July 24). Mr Rockliff said the State Government was a proud supporter of the project on Lake Dobson Rd at National Park, which he said would provide another excellent tourism offering in the Derwent Valley.

Mr Rockliff said Mt Field National Park and its prime attraction the Russell Falls had attracted about 104,000 visitors last year. “I am confident that with the opening of this retreat, this visitor demand will only grow further for the Derwent Valley region, and each surrounding small business will experience nothing but a positive impact,” the Premier said.

Destination Southern Tasmania chief executive Alex Heroys welcomed the development of the Mt Field Retreat, which he said provided state-of-the art accommodation. The first four units are intended to be followed by a further eight self-contained cabins, a conference centre and further accommodation options.
