Road less travelled for Ambrose

 

One of Tasmania's favourite sons is hoping he can put the Central Highlands on visitors' 'must do' lists.

Motor sport ace Marcos Ambrose has returned home to Tasmania and converted a former Antarctic training facility at Liawenee into a wilderness lodge.

Mr Ambrose said he's battled the elements to get the project across the finish line.

"We had the big floods in June, we had a lot of snow get dumped on us in late August, but we pushed through those and transformed this building, which was a really unloved piece of Tasmanian infrastructure into a contemporary,modern space."

Mr Ambrose said he hopes the Thousand Lakes Lodge will be a drawcard for the Central Highlands.

"This area is a beautiful part of Tasmania, not very well known, certainly not part of the standard tourist route... so we know we're promoting both the lodge and the area."
