December 21, 2020

Some of Tasmania’s finest are now on offer at Hobart Airport with Cascade Café and Bar, Liv-Eat Fresh Eating and Coal River Farm officially open for business.  

We’re extremely proud to see local producers shine throughout menus of familiar Tasmanian fare.

Congratulations to our partner, SSP Group PLC on successfully bringing this vision to life.

We look forward to welcoming and farewelling travellers with a uniquely Tasmanian dining experience this summer.

Camera traps are also used to monitor the movements and better understand the behaviour of animals in the airport environment.  

Since the installation of camera traps in early 2016, images collected have shown that many threatened species use the environment around and within the airport boundary including the Tasmanian Devil, the Spotted quoll and the Tasmanian bettong.

We recognise our role in protecting the biodiversity of the airport and Tasmania more broadly and are confident this technology will assist us in doing so.

Environment Manager Kirsten Leggett

Initial testing of virtual fencing devices in Tasmania has seen a 50 per cent reduction in road kill deaths over a three-year period and has been instrumental in protecting the remaining Tasmanian Devil population.

The virtual fencing will be monitored by Hobart Airport’s environment team to capture and report data on the rates of roadkill deaths in the area and better understand the behaviour of the animals that call the airport home.

“We’re building better facilities and a better airport to serve our community”
