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.

Cradle Mountain Masterplan unveiled!
The Cradle Coast Authority (CCA) today (Thursday 10 March) released a visionary blueprint for Cradle Mountain which, if supported by Government, will provide an experience matched to the expectations of the increasing number of international visitors. Cradle Mountain is a site of world significance with internationally recognised natural and cultural heritage. It is a jewel in Tasmania’s crown integral to its internationally recognised wilderness experience.
