RACING champion Marcos Ambrose wants to create a truly Tasmanian experience for visitors by redeveloping an abandoned lodge in the state's central highlands. Thousand Lakes Lodge, formerly known as Bernacchi Lodge, is expected to open to the public in October. Mr Ambrose said his plan had always been to return to Tasmania and invest in the state. "I'm a proud Tasmanian, and I'm happy to put my money to work in this state to give back a little bit," he said.
