Tasmanian Government releases Cycle Tourism Strategy

Tasmanian Government releases Cycle Tourism Strategy
October 22, 2017

The Tasmanian Government has released its Tasmanian Cycle Tourism Strategy to guide the development of the State’s cycling tracks and trails, grow and promote experiences and events, and improve safety for all cyclists.

The Strategy identifies three priority areas to realise the cycle industry’s potential:

Priority One
Infrastructure that provides diverse, accessible and high quality visitor experiences: Tracks, routes and trails

Priority Two
Education and support that leads industry and community development, services and businesses: Business support and education

Priority Three
Experience development that positions Tasmania as Australia’s best cycling destination: Marketing and events

The Tasmanian Government has also committed $6 million to establish the Cycle Tourism Fund to back the Strategy, with the funding to be used to support projects to achieve a vision of making Tasmania the nation’s leading cycle tourism destination.

This funding is in addition to $1 million already allocated for the St Helens Mountain Bike Trail Network and $800,000 in the Blue Derby Mountain Bike Trails.

The Cycle Tourism Fund is now open for applications with applications to be made before mid-December. Successful projects are expected to be announced in February 2018.
