Tourism boost

West Coast Wilderness Railway up and running

The Tasmanian Greens Tourism spokesperson Tim Morris MP today applauded the return of the West Coast Wilderness Railway.

“It’s great to see the railway back up and running, supporting local employment and community spirit in the midst of a peak tourist season for Tasmania,” Mr Morris said.

“Projects like this are essential for ensuring that the benefits of the Tasmanian tourism boom are felt all across the state, not just in the south.”

“The next big challenge is finding an operator who can run the business on a financially sustainable, long-term basis.”

“It’s vitally important that the Minister works to establish a new operator as soon as possible to shore up confidence within the local community.”

“The Greens are committed to tourism as vital industry in Tasmania for delivering jobs and economic growth in regional areas.”
