Seven projects in the electorates of Bass and Lyons in Tasmania (Australia) will receive AU$550,700 for the construction and upgrading of camping, fishing, and boating facilities as part of the Liberals’ $20 million Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities program.

The announcement was made by the Federal Liberal Government in a press release on Tuesday, saying that the projects are part of its plan for a strong economy and a stronger future. Overall, the funding was announced for nine infrastructure projects across Tasmania.

“We know Australians love to enjoy the outdoors, whether it be pitching a tent, taking the tinnie out, or casting a line,” Liberal Member for Bass Bridget Archer said.

Tasmanian Minister for Local Government and Sport and Recreation Nic Street also commented. “It is enjoyed by many Tasmanians of all ages and these grants will help to get more people active and appreciating the outdoors,” Street said.

The government has committed an additional $20 million toward an extension of the program. 

As for Liberal Candidate for Lyons Susie Bower, the move will make regional areas more attractive to visitors, boosting local tourism and supporting economic recovery.
