A TOURISM BOOST FOR OUR REGIONS

New, innovative and unforgettable tourism drawcards bringing visitors to regions like the Coffs Coast are set for a major funding boost under the NSW Government’s $150 million Regional Tourism Activation Fund.

Member for Coffs Harbour Gurmesh Singh said the Fund continues to support the tourism industry in regional NSW and makes the Coffs Coast an even greater destination for visitors.

“After the impacts of COVID-19 and severe weather events, the need to drive tourism to our local communities has never been greater,” Mr Singh said.

“Bringing tourism dollars into regional economies from intrastate, interstate and international visitation is extremely important and that’s why the NSW Government is supporting local tourism projects.”

Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW Paul Toole said the Regional Tourism Activation Fund supports local economies and jobs by backing unique tourism experiences that will attract visitors and showcase our regions.

“Regional NSW has the best destinations and experiences on offer across Australia, so it makes sense that we invest in new high impact projects that will drive tourism dollars into the regions,” Mr Toole said.

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 close on 27 September 2022 at 5pm.
