Strengthening North West tourism

Will Hodgman, Premier

19 April 2017

Our plan to grow the visitor economy and make Tasmania the environmental tourism capital of the world are being bolstered by a new agreement between the State's largest land manager, the Tasmania Parks and Wildlife Service, and the Cradle Coast Authority.

Both organisations share a keen interest in the development and management of the region's parks and reserves, and this new agreement commits them to further developing commercially, socially and environmentally sustainable tourism opportunities.

Our parks and reserves are a precious asset that not only provide for conservation of globally significant natural and cultural values, but also opportunities for recreation and tourism.

This MOU will build on the strong relationship that has existed for many years between the CCA and the PWS, by providing a more strategic approach to advancing tourism opportunities in our natural areas.

Congratulations to the Cradle Coast Authority and the Parks and Wildlife Service on their collaboration and commitment to further growing the region's visitor economy, which supports local businesses and jobs.
