Parks and Wildlife Service Tasmania have completed a boardwalk along the scenic Coastal Track at Narawntapu National Park, just in time to welcome the influx of people visiting in spring and summer.
The Coastal Track is a moderate half-day walk with stunning views of the northwest coast and Bass Strait with Black Bluff, Mt Roland and the Dial Range visible on clear days.
The three-plank boardwalk, running from Bakers Beach to Badger Beach, has been reconstructed in four separate sections to replace the existing boardwalk after it was destroyed by fire in 2013.
Parks Tasmania said that the project provided a good opportunity for old hands to teach both new and less experienced staff skills in boardwalk construction.
The completed boardwalk will also help reduce erosion at stream crossings, caused by foot traffic.
In addition to the boardwalk, there’s a new bench seat overlooking Copper Cove, which can be accessed using the Coastal Track from either the Badger Head or Springlawn ends of the park.
