9. Growing our natural economy

Strengthen the economic base around our natural assets and landscapes.

Strengthening the economic base around our natural assets and distinctive landscape features by enhancing a network of nature-based and cultural experiences supported by overnight accommodation and day visitor options.

To do this the Strategy identifies the need to:

  • Continue to build our understanding of our natural assets and the services they provide as we advocate for and grow the natural economy
  • Undertake eco-tourism planning, investigate cultural tourism opportunities and promote in partnership with community, industry and government.
