Torndirrup National Park upgrades complete

Posted On April 11, 2016

The Northern Territory government has completed $6.1 million worth of upgrades to improve facilities in Torndirrup National Park.

Minister for the Environment, Albert Jacob, said the upgrades would be open to the public before the beginning of April school holidays.

"This much anticipated redevelopment features two universally accessible lookout structures, connecting paths, a picnic area, interpretive signage and a car park," Jacob said.

"I encourage locals and visitors to the Great Southern region to experience these world-class facilities - one of the best and safest ways to get immersed in the grandeur of the Southern Ocean."

The newly constructed see-through platform at the park rises almost 40 metres above the ocean and extends 10 metres out from the cliff face.

Minister for Regional Development, Terry Redman, said the project was funded by the state government's Royalties for Regions program.

"Tourism is vital to regional Western Australia's economy.  Visitors to the state spend $8.9 billion a year - $4 billion of that in the regions - and the industry employs about 94,000 people, many of those in regional areas," he said.

"The Great Southern Development Commission also played a major role in securing funding for this project and I thank them for their input and commitment."

Torndirrup National Park receives more than 210,000 visitors each year.
