Guy Barnett,Minister for Resources
The Tasmanian majority Liberal Government is pleased to announce Tahune Airwalk will reopen to the public from Saturday 29 February, in what will be a major boost for the community.
The reopening of the iconic attraction, follows the recovery and repair of the Airwalk, which was damaged in the January 2019 bushfires.
Tahune Airwalk is a major draw card, expected to attract more than 100,000 visitors annually, making it a significant driver of jobs and investment in the local area.
The Airwalk will employ former and new employees, providing job opportunities to many locals in the area, with economic benefits to the Geeveston community and Huon Valley expected to be immense, with an increase in local, national and international visitors to the area.
This strongly supports this Government’s regional tourism strategy, encouraging tourists to explore further, spend more and stay longer in regional Tasmania.
I would like to recognise and congratulate Sustainable Timber Tasmania, Tahune Adventures and their contractors for the monumental work undertaken to get this important tourism site operational following the devastating bushfires.
I strongly encourage all Tasmanians visit and experience this world-class attraction, and support the Geeveston and Huon Valley communities.
