Funding boost for tourism in Regional NSW

Funding boost for tourism in Regional NSW
December 24, 2015

NSW regional tourism businesses in Mudgee, Port Stephens, the Hunter and Parkes will benefit from more than $600,000 after successfully applying for NSW Government funding from the Regional Visitor Economy Fund administered by Destination NSW. 

NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events Stuart Ayres said the funds will go towards marketing and product development projects aimed at increasing overnight visitation to the regions which helps to grow local economies across Regional NSW.

Minister Ayres stated “these funds will not only go towards upgrading and improving business services, but will provide a platform for NSW regional tourism operators to promote their wonderful products and experiences to domestic and international visitors.

“NSW is home to some of the country’s best tourism attractions and I am delighted these businesses will benefit from this NSW Government initiative.”

The successful applicants – Mudgee Region Tourism, Port Stephens Tourism, The Hunter Resort and Parkes Shire Council – will receive funding on a matched dollar-for-dollar basis from Round Two of the Contestable Regional Visitor Economy Fund.

The final round of the Contestable Fund – Round Three – will open on 1st February and close on 11th March 2016.

A new digital platform set to inspire travellers to visit regional NSW has been launched to increase visitation and expenditure to inland communities. The inland digital platform also provides travellers with the ability to build personalised itineraries, based on rich content and a powerful booking engine.

This project has also been backed by the Regional Visitor Economy Fund.
