Tourism Strategic Plan 2012-17

A five year co-operative tourism plan has been commissioned to help guide the development of tourism within the Mid West region.

The Mid West shires of Morawa, Mingenew, Mullewa, Perenjori, Three Springs, Carnamah, Moora, Dalwallinu and Coorow have identified tourism as an opportunity to support the region’s key industries. Tourism has the potential to stimulate economic growth and create employment particularly for the youth within the region.

Traditionally the nine shires have existed independently, operating visitor centres and promoting local sites without regard for neighbouring shires. The plan however, will be instrumental in forging partnerships and alliances, developing a profile for the region’s tourism, assisting in funding applications, and encouraging tourism planning across the region.

It is anticipated that through a co-operative approach to improving the region’s tourism product and profile, the region will benefit through economies of scale, synergy, and collaboration.
