Latest News from the Tasmanian Liberals
Jeremy Rockliff, Acting Minister for Primary Industries and Water,
The Hodgman majority Liberal Government is delivering on its plan to modernise how we manage wild fallow deer, game and browsing animals in Tasmania.
As part of this plan, Tasmania’s first comprehensive state-wide deer census will use aerial surveying, camera traps and citizen science to provide quality scientific data, supporting informed decision making and ensuring effective long-term management.
Will Hodgman, Premier
Minister for Trade
The Tasmanian Government welcomes this week’s visit from a delegation of South Korean fisheries cooperatives. The visit demonstrates our Trade Strategy is working and that Tasmania’s world class marine science and innovative fisheries industries are continuing to capture the world’s attention.
Peter Gutwein, Minister for the Environment, Parks and Heritage
Cradle Mountain is one of Tasmania’s iconic visitor destinations and a major visitor draw card driving demand in the North West.
The Hodgman majority Liberal Government is committed to transforming Cradle Mountain into a truly world-class experience for locals and visitors who come to see it from around the world.
The shuttle bus service at Cradle Mountain was introduced in response to increasing traffic on the Dove Lake Road resulting from growing visitation and to improve safety on the road.

Jeremy Rockliff, Minister for Sport and Recreation
Two female Tasmanian coaches will have the opportunity to develop their skills and gain national experience as part of the Hodgman majority Liberal Government’s Women in Sport Coaching Scholarship.
Jessica Blake (hockey) and Abbey Savage (swimming) have today been announced as the successful recipients for 2019-20, following the inaugural launch of the scholarship last year.
Joan Rylah, Liberal Member for Braddon
The Labor Party’s token visit to the North-West Coast this week highlights its absolute hypocrisy when it comes to supporting Tasmanians living in regional areas.
Labor’s track record when it comes to the North-West Coast is appalling and no amount of spin can wallpaper over their lack of interest.
Labor’s inferior health policy, which it re-wrote five times, did not commit to a single new bed for the North-West.
Will Hodgman, Premier
Minister for Tourism, Hospitality and Events
Cruise ships are an important contributor to Tasmania’s visitor economy, injecting $30.5 million into the state last year.
The Sustainable Cruise Blueprint, released today, outlines our plan to grow this to $50 million by 2022, by encouraging smaller, expedition vessels to visit our regional ports.
The Blueprint will ensure the benefits of cruise ships are shared by even more Tasmanians and supports our plan for visitors to stay longer and spend more time in regional areas.
Jane Howlett, Liberal Member for Prosser
The Hodgman majority Liberal Government is proud to support the wonderful celebration of science that is Beaker Street as it returns to the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery (TMAG).
BeakerStreet@TMAG will present two mind-expanding nights of talks, debates, bars and live music this Friday and Saturday night.
