Environment Tasmania has created walking tracks around the state that connect local communities and tourists with the rare beauty of Tasmania's native forests.
Our Blue Tier Giant Walk provides visitor access to stunning tall tree forest. It was opened in 2014, and is getting rave reviews for both its track design and engaging interpretive signs. Work at Higgs and Warners Tracks on the Central Plateau, Arm River Track and Lake Skinner near the Snowy Mountains, will address environmental issues like track erosion.
While our teams have done some serious hands-on track construction and repair - Wild Walks is about more than the physical tracks. We've also worked to engage local communities, supporting them as they connect with nature and become the stewards of the tracks in their backyards - which just happen to be on the World Heritage list! We've also worked closely with the Parks and Wildlife Service, to ensure the walking track projects are beneficial to local communities and tourism and respectful of environmental and cultural values.
