Queensland ecotourism plan released

Queensland ecotourism plan released
September 12, 2013

A final version of the Queensland Ecotourism Plan 2013-2020 was released last week at the second DestinationQ forum on the Gold Coast.

The plan pledges to encourage local government to support ecotourism via development opportunities that can complement rural and conservation land uses.

It aims to provide tourism operators, government, community and other stakeholders with a clear direction on how Queensland will leverage its competitive advantage to become a world leader in ecotourism.

As part of a three-year action plan local government authorities will be invited to participate in regional forums involving QPWS regional directors, regional tourism organisations and other key stakeholders in order to promote coordination and information sharing about ecotourism opportunities and emerging tourism trends and priorities.
