Welcome to the Cradle Coast Authority

The Cradle Coast Authority is a joint authority created by the nine councils of North West Tasmania  to facilitate the sustainable development of the region, resolve regional issues and coordinate regional-scale activity.

Our purpose is to represent our councils and their communities as a region.

The Authority is currently engaged in a wide range of regional initiatives including:

  • Tourism
  • Natural Resource Management (NRM)
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Healthy Communities Toolkit
  • Education, Training and Workforce Development
  • Industry Development
  • Local Government services
  • Facilitating the Regional Planning Initiative and Land Use Strategy
  • Other issues identified by the Board or Councils, and agreed to by the Representatives

These initiatives contribute to the Cradle Coast region's vision of being a strong region of councils known for its positive people, sustainable economy, strategic thinking and the wellbeing of its communities.
