The region is made up of nine local Council areas which share some of the most picturesque and pristine destinations and scenery in the world.
The 2017 Games is a perfect opportunity to open up some of these ‘best kept secrets’ to those who have always wanted to visit Tasmania but haven’t yet made the trip.
This is according to Cradle Coast Authority CEO Brett Smith who himself moved to Tasmania only a year ago and has completely fallen in love with the place.
“From pristine rainforests, to crystal blue beaches and rolling fertile tracks of farm lands - the North West has it all,” he said.
“It would be unfair to isolate any particular destination as they are all so beautiful and unique. Instead, we will be planning up a super special itinerary that places the sports against amazingly diverse and inspiring backdrops.”
More than 10,000 athletes and spectators will come together in Adelaide in 2019 for the 17th Australian Masters Games.
Tasmania’s North West has put on a show during eight days of memorable Australian Masters Games action, according to Games general manager Scott Wade.
