Concept

The Hobart City Council determined that there was potential for a Visitor Centre at a key location on kunanyi Mt Wellington, Hobart, but the nature and focus of the centre had not been considered. We did some high level investigation into the policy, planning and market context. We investigated the site and surrounds and consulted with key stakeholders familiar with the Mountain. We did research and analysis into successful visitor centres nationally and internationally and looked at the vision and purpose of centres that are being developed currently.

We developed a concept for a Centre, specific to the Springs location, connecting with existing and emerging markets, trends and the extensive existing assets in this magnificent location.
