Mt Field National Park tourism boom as accommodation restructured

Published on : Saturday, December 30, 2017

Mt Field National ParkAt Mt Field National Park, Australia, a new accommodation experience is being assured as private leaseholders takes on its campground and the Lake Dobson huts.

Rachel and Greg Power, who administers the Waterfalls Cafe and Gallery at the Mt Field visitor centre, will take the charge over the accommodation of the park under the administration of the State Government’s tourism expression of interest program.

The proposal of the duo is going through a negotiation stage with the Parks and Wildlife Service authorities and could get the green signal in 2018 mid-year.

“It’s the ability to be a one-stop shop for accommodation here, but also to increase the visitation and add some services,” Ms Power said.

Online bookings will be arranged to manage the huge visitor influx to the much-adored park.

However, developments funded by the Powers could also be on the way. Already the couple has had a development application permitted for around $3.6 million, 70-room Mt Field Retreat outside the park.

They will talk about improvements to the present facilities within the park with the PWS, with ways to conquer the current flood of campers.

“Some of the ideas we’ve put forward are potentially maybe eco-cabins in areas that are already developed,” Ms Power said.

“We’re not looking to change the park or change the current experience, but we’re looking to add to it.”

Mt Field witnessed a 28 percent ascend in terms of visitors to a record 189,000 last year. Ms Power stated that the region has become a multi-day destination with the national park, Maydena Bike Park and Southwest National Park all on the trail.
