Technical Tour

The Technical Tour on Saturday, 29th October will start with a bus departing from MyState Arena to Kingston Park. A pickup option will also be provided for Hobart. Upon arrival, a light morning tea will be offered before departing on a walking tour of the site.

Kingston Park is an 11Ha site located in Kingston. Formerly a high school site, Council took the role of developer and subdivided the land. Council invested funds to develop the community infrastructure including a community hub building and large playground.

The tour will meander through these sites detailing the journey that’s occurred and will conclude at the existing wetlands with a modern floating stormwater treatment system has been established; a first for the state.

The walking tour will be followed by lunch at a local café before departing back to MyState Arena.
