National Trust of Australia (Tasmania) has approached both federal and state governments to help fund $4 million in capital works.
The state government has provided a $350,000 grant, while newly-elected Liberal Bass MHR Bridget Archer committed to meet with Trust representatives.
"I look forward to working with the National Trust in Tasmania to discuss funding priorities for Northern Tasmania," Ms Archer said.
