Liberals’ plan for Tasmania – more funding for improved boating, camping and fishing facilities


The Morrison Government is investing an additional $20 million in the highly successful national Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities Program to fund critical infrastructure works in Tasmania.

The Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities Program will help deliver better boating, camping and fishing facilities around the country, with councils in Braddon able to apply for funding.

“We know Australians love to get into the outdoors, whether it’s pitching a tent, taking the tinnie out, or casting a line,” said Liberal Braddon MP, Gavin Pearce.

“These projects will support our economic recovery through construction, creating jobs in local communities and boosting tourism.

“Only through the Liberal Government’s strong economic management can we continue to deliver these important local infrastructure projects for our boating, camping and recreational fishing community in Braddon.

“The projects funded by this program will provide long-term value and ensure infrastructure amenities are accessible to all Australians to enjoy well into the future.”

The last round of funding under the program allocated funding for ten projects across six local council areas including upgrades to carparking along the Mersey, public showers at Sulphur Creek, Penguin and Turners Beach, a fish cleaning station in West Ulverstone, campsite facilities in Myalla, RV dump point at Yolla, and new toilets/change rooms and carpark at South Burnie.

Only the Morrison Government will continue to deliver a better future for Braddon, and this is part of our plan to build a strong economy and a stronger future.
