Waratah Tourism Assets: Request for Proposal

(Wanted: Modern Day Pioneer) - APPLICATIONS HAVE REOPENED

Waratah-Wynyard Council extends an invitation for interested persons to submit a Request For Proposal (RFP) for the operation of Council owned and maintained Tourism infrastructure in the town of Waratah, North West Tasmania. Assets included in this proposal are the Waratah Caravan and Camping Ground, Athanauem Hall (home to the Tarkine Interpretaion Centre) and the Kenworthy Stamper Mill.

Council is seeking proposals which demonstrates a sound business plan and innovative marketing strategies which would facilitate the growth and development and realise the tourism potential of these assets. It is anticipated that the successful proponent will manage the assets on a commercial basis – with a guaranteed income stream from the Waratah Caravan and Camping ground and potential to increase this income in a number of ways.

Council will now consider all proposals on an individual basis.

More information can be obtained from Tourism Project Officer Rachael Hogge on Phone (03)6443 8333 or email rhogge@warwyn.tas.gov.au

Request for Proposals close on  31 December 2016.

FEATURE STORY- Waratah is looking for the next Philosopher Smith

In 1871, a lone man by the name of James ‘Philosopher’ Smith found tin in the remote, unforgiving wilderness in North-West Tasmania. It was a discovery that was to change the fortunes of the entire State, and the town of Waratah was to become the central hub for prosperity and riches beyond anything imaginable by the most optimistic of prospectors and dreamers.

One hundred and forty three years later, Waratah is once again poised to become a centre of wealth and economic growth.  It’s not there yet – but it’s ready.  Ironically, some of the challenges faced by the early pioneers have become the very essence of what makes it a potential goldmine today.  The pristine environment, the unparalleled natural beauty and riches and the wildness of the environment have become the beacon of light for todays’ prospectors.
