South Australian Government invites public comment on Nature-Based Tourism Plan
South Australia has released a draft Nature-based Tourism Action Plan to boost tourism in national parks, marine parks and reserves for public comment.
The plan outlines 10 actions that aim to boost nature-based tourism, while supporting the ongoing conservation of our natural and cultural heritage.
The Action Plan is part of the Nature-based Tourism Project, a joint initiative of the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources and the South Australian Tourism Commission.
The goal is to increase expenditure generated from trips that include nature from $1.1 billion to $1.45 billion by 2020 and generate 1,000 new jobs. This is aligned to the Government’s fifth economic priority, which aims to make South Australia a growing destination choice for international and domestic travellers.
Nature is the number one driver of international visitors to Australia, with about 40% of all international visitors to Australia travelling to a national park in 2013/14.
South Australia’s special places cover more than 21% of the State’s land and 44% of the State’s waters. They contain outstanding examples of our unique Aboriginal culture, abundant wildlife, flora and marine life, geology and landscapes, rivers, coastlines, islands and outback lakes, and countless scenic routes and adventure trails.
The Action Plan reflects the advice of tourism operators, environmental groups, traditional owners, local government, relevant stakeholders and interested community members.
