Tourism - Expression of Interest

Tourism - Expression of Interest

Council has recently adopted a Geotourism Strategy to guide the development of tourism within the Etheridge Shire. Head over to the Geotourism page of our website.

Council is calling for expressions of interest from graziers who have significant natural heritage features such as landscape, geological outcrops, and flora and fauna associated with their properties and who are open to developing a tourism business (t...o generate additional revenue streams and supplementing farm income) to be involved in a pilot project. Such a pilot project could examine all of the perceived opportunities (including, for example, farm stay accommodation options and the development of 'geotrails') and to develop measures that address any concerns such as the protection of identified sensitive indigenous cultural sites including rock paintings as well as addressing any biosecurity concerns.

Council is looking for a business concept – how you envisage that your property could be developed for tourism, identifying the uniqueness and your commitment to their proposal.
