The RACT has marked the completion of its Freycinet Renewal Project at Freycinet Lodge on the east coast with a community celebration.

The project included nine new Coastal Pavilions, six new Mountain Terrace rooms, an accessibility suite and lift in the main Lodge building, as well as an extensive upgrade of the reception, lounge, bar and dining areas. The accessibility suite will open in mid-September.

RACT Group CEO Harvey Lennon said since construction work on the project commenced in July last year, a spectacular transformation had been achieved, not only in the physical appearance of the Lodge but in the experience the RACT was now offering guests.

“The feeling that has been created is truly one of immersion in nature, which is exactly what we wanted to achieve,” he said.

Mr Lennon said the Coastal Pavilions had already been well received by the locals and visitors to the state.

“They have exceeded our expectations in terms of sales, as well as generating some outstanding feedback from guests and media from all over the world,” he said.

Mr Lennon thanked project director Brett Torossi, designers and architects Liminal Studio and builders Cordwell Lane for their outstanding work on the project.

“I would also like to thank everyone at the RACT who worked on the project,” he said. “They have done an outstanding job.”

The RACT received grant funding of $1 million from the Australian and Tasmanian Governments through the Tasmania Jobs and Investment Fund.
