TOURISTS planning a trip up the cape in the future will be able to stay at a new coastal tourist park near the Iron Range National Park after a development application was approved at the recent Cook Shire Council Meeting.

The tourist park will be built near Cape Weymouth and the Iron Range National Park, North of Lockhart and will be able to accommodate a maximum of 74 people at one time, at any stage of the development.

There will be three stages of development, stage one will have self-contained camping sites while stages two and three will both see the construction of five cabins.

Cook Shire Council Mayor Peter Scott said the local Lockhart River community will benefit greatly from this new development.

“Visitor numbers from down south and interstate are increasing dramatically each year and all towns, roadhouses, motels and pubs along the way will benefit from more development such as this,” he said.
