The bushfire situation in the TWWHA has worsened significantly in the last 40 years. Effective fire management depends on a range of risk management actions, none of which on their own provides a complete solution.
It is possible that the marketing will win out and the Three Capes Track will become a popular iconic walking experience but a more probable future is envisaged.
The release of the 2014 Draft Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Management Plan has realised the our worst fears, including a clear aim to increase commercial tourism access to, and development of, the TWWHA.
Our aim is responsible long-term management of Tasmania's natural and cultural resources, which will place Tasmania in the forefront of environmental conservation and sustainable management.
