Tourism plan to breath new life into old gold mine village

A former gold mining village on Tasmania's west coast is to be brought back to life.

A business consortium from New South Wales, Tarkine Wilderness, wants to establish eco-tourism accommodation at Corinna on the Pieman River, a gold mining settlement established in the late 1800s.

Design manager Allan Johnson says the multi-million dollar project will preserve existing cottages.

"The developers will preserve the buildings that are there and then add to that site down there the construction of 14 very low impact cottages designed along the style of mining cottages, so they will be very low impact but reflect the heritage of the area," he said.
