TTF release new paper titled ‘Unlocking our Great Outdoors’

    Tourism and Transport Forum (TTF) released (08-Aug-2017) a new paper highlighting the need for investment in Australia‘s natural tourist destinations. TTF CEO Margy Osmond stated: “Releasing the paper, Unlocking our Great Outdoors, is an important contribution to the debate around how we can best conserve our natural areas while also unlocking the economic benefits that can be delivered by nature-based tourism”. The research has found that there is greater potential for nature-based tourism in Australia. Ms Osmand continued: “What these new figures show is that across Australia international visitors make up a tiny four per cent of tourists visiting our national park areas. The potential to double this visitation in the next few years with the right facilities, conservation priorities and government backing is enormous”. [more – original PR]
