Parks fees modernisation welcome but more detail needed

Tasmanian Labor
  • Parks fees modernisation overdue
  • Government pinching more Labor policies
  • Tasmanian Labor has cautiously welcomed the Hodgman Government’s announcement it will modernise fees structure for parks visitors.

    Labor Leader Rebecca White said the Government had followed Labor’s lead.

    “It’s good to see the Government recognising the value in Labor’s park fees policy that we announced before the last election,” Ms White said.

    “The Premier should now release full details of his new policy so that it can be analysed in Parliament and by the tourism industry.

    “Any extra revenue must be reinvested in enhancing the visitor experience, protecting our natural assets and upgrading visitor infrastructure.”
