Increased Funding for Tourism on the South Coast

By Elke Blake

The NSW Minister for Trade, Tourism and Major Events, Stuart Ayres, has announced a new $43 million reform  for the tourism network that will deliver “increased funding, improved governance and more tourists’’ to Kiama and the Illawarra.  This will divide the state into six new ‘destination networks’, which includes the Illawarra and Shoalhaven.

Both Kiama and Gerringong will be able to leverage Sydney tourism which is welcomed by Gareth Ward MP and Kiama municipality.

As Gareth Ward stated, “What we now have is a plan that properly links us to the Sydney market…I want to see as many dollars spent in as many Kiama businesses (and its surrounding areas) as I can, and what this does is better target all of the things we have to offer to the market.”

What this means for Gerringong is that it will help boost local businesses within the next six months – both Winter and Summer. This allows for shops to stay in business and be successful which this tourism money will help achieve.
