Visitors Centre Upgrade
With visitor numbers on the rise over the past two years the The Friends of Bruny Island Quarantine Station (FOBIQS) have been actively improving visitor facilities with the kind support of a National Conservation Grant from Parks & Wildlife via Wildcare – Parks for People.
FOBIQS’s aim is to develop better visitor and interpretation facilities at the station site on North Bruny, in line with Parks and Wildlife Service’s aim to improve facilities and enjoyment for all. The recent working bee was supported by volunteers, caretakers and Park’s staff ( including Senior Ranger Jeremy Hood) saw Phase 1 of the toilet facilities upgrade completed (septic tank installed and drainage field work initiated). The new toilets will form part of the new visitor’s facilities in the decommissioned Plant Quarantine Building.
FOBIQS is looking forward to completion of the next phases of the visitors facilities upgrade in preparation for another busy summer visitor season.
