Will the dry conditions on the East Coast of Tasmania have an impact on the upcoming tourism season?

Tasmania Talks listener, Karl from Ulverstone, called in for Free Range Friday to chat with Brian Carlton about the possibility of drought-proofing the East Coast.

Karl, a truck driver, claims East Coast locals have voiced their concerns to him, stating that water restrictions may need to be put in place earlier than usual, as there is currently not enough water available for tourist season.
