A cap on visitors to Freycinet on Tasmania's East Coast has been flagged to protect the area from mass tourism.
Freycinet Action Network convenor Sophie Underwood said the Freycinet Master Plan failed to address limiting visitor numbers.
"It is the elephant in the room and the plan does not address the big issue of how to limit visitor numbers," Ms Underwood said.
A meeting to discuss the plan will be held at Coles Bay on Monday April 22.
Ms Underwood said there was growing concern among the local community, and even internationally, about the future of Freycinet.
"The recent release of the revised draft Freycinet Peninsula Master Plan 2019 only serves to escalate concern," she said.
"Limiting visitor numbers is outside the scope of the plan but that is what we need to address.
"Maybe there should be a cap. We have to look at the level of development and infrastructure for the Freycinet Peninsula."
The public meeting to discuss the plan will be held at the Coles Bay community hall starting at 11am with public submissions closing on Friday April 26.
Ms Underwood said it was vital the community had its say on the master plan which would be in place until 2037.
"If the government could listen to the community we would all get a better outcome," she said.
"It is so important we don't destroy the Freycinet experience and brand, and indeed Tasmania and Australia's brand.
"We just want to see the integrity of the Freycinet area maintained."
Ms Underwood said she was worried there was no state policy on tourism and the master plan had been developed in a "vacuum".
"The plan doesn't address the big issue which is visitor numbers," she said.
"We're also worried about the new precinct in the plan and the trend of the government to privatise public land and give developers an invitation to develop it, which is not a transparent process."
Ms Underwood, who is a shack owner and has been visiting Coles Bay for 50 years, said it was more than a tourism destination for many people.
"Any development has to be sustainable and we need to see what we can learn from places around the world who are suffering from mass tourism," she said.
On the eve of the Coles Bay meeting, Nelson candidate in the Legislative Council election Vica Bayley called on the government to suspend the EOI process for new tourism developments in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area as development of a Tourism Master Plan begins its public consultation phase.
A government spokesman dismissed Mr Bayley's call.
"It demonstrates nothing more than his personal desire to lock-up Tasmania and lock people out of these areas," he said.
