SeaLink is working together with the community to ensure locals benefit from an improved ferry service that delivers greater capacity and certainty into the future.
As part of this engagement, a Bruny Island Ferry Reference Group has been established to work through a variety of practical questions about the service. The Reference Group includes representatives from the community, Kingborough Council, SeaLink and the Department of State Growth, and meets regularly during the transition phase.
In consultation with the Government, tourism operators and the local community, SeaLink has developed a staged plan to transition to the SeaLink Bruny Island service and will work closely with the Reference Group at each stage.
SeaLink is also actively engaging with the local community in person and online. This has been achieved by hosting a series of street corner meetings at various locations on Bruny Island as well as directly engaging with the community through their existing Facebook Groups. SeaLink is also responding in a timely manner to enquiries received through its email and Facebook Page.
