The Port Arthur Historic Site Management Authority presents this semi-regular series of Talks by authoritative speakers on a variety of topics, ranging from history and conservation to environmental issues, research results, study tours and much more. Rich and varied subjects and speakers make for fascinating listening and discussion.
Held every couple of months at the Junior Medical Officer’s Conference Room at Port Arthur Historic Site, the Talks are free of charge and open to anyone who is interested in the topic.
Three Capes Track project: construction and current operation by Sam Lennox
Stunning landscapes and some of the world’s highest sea cliffs are encountered on one of the largest nature tourism projects undertaken in Australia, the Three Capes Track, on the Tasman Peninsula. Commencing in 2012, and with most of the physical labour undertaken by hand, the 48km track was officially opened in late 2015. Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Ranger, Sam Lennox, will detail aspects of the project delivery, covering the planning and approval phase, construction and current operations.
Currently a Ranger at the Tasman Field Centre, Sam Lennox worked as track construction supervisor on the Three Capes Track Project.
