Tourism Western Australia: Boost for WA’s regional visitor centres

23-Oct-2017 Thirty-three regional visitor centres across Western Australia have received State Government funding for projects to help make them more sustainable.

The Regional Visitor Centre Sustainability Grant Program, made possible by Tourism Western Australia and Royalties for Regions, provides $4.2 million over four years to enable regional visitor centres to transition towards financial sustainability.

A funding pool of $1.05 million was offered in 2017-18 as part of the third and final round of the grant program.

Projects supported include a new fit-out and touch screen technology at the Bunbury Visitor Centre, development of a new website for the Derby Tourist Bureau, website development, IT upgrades and new signage at the Kalgoorlie Boulder Tourist Centre, and development of a business plan and training at the Geraldton Visitor Centre.

Visitor centres are an important part of WA’s tourism industry, adding $117 million into the State's economy and generating more than 900 jobs.

Since the launch of the scheme, more than 100 grants have been provided to regional visitor centres across WA, helping to boost tourism and employment.
