Tourism boost puts regional NSW on the map

New, innovative and unforgettable tourism drawcards that will bring visitors from far and wide to regional NSW are set for a major funding boost, thanks to the NSW Government’s $150 million Regional Tourism Activation Fund.

Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the fund supports local economies and jobs by backing the unique tourism experiences the region has to offer.

“This region is home to some truly amazing and unique cultural, sporting and tourism attractions, and this fund is all about making sure they’re the best they can be,” Mr Saunders said.

“In the first round we committed over $100,000 for Mid-Western Regional Council to construct an inclusive and accessible amenities building at the Glen Willow Regional Sports Stadium, meaning more locals and visitors alike can enjoy this amazing facility.

“Round Two will continue our commitment to accessible and inclusive tourism, by funding upgrades, such as lifts and access pathways, to give more people with disability the opportunity to experience what our regions have to offer.”

The latest round of the fund is for high-impact projects that will increase visitor numbers and spending, as well as the length time people are staying in regional NSW.

The $150 million Regional Tourism Activation Fund Round Two is part of the NSW Government’s $3.3 billion Regional Growth Fund.

Applications for Round Two of the Regional Tourism Activation Fund open Tuesday 2 August 2022 and close on 27 September 2022 at 5pm.
