The Swan Valley will benefit from $50,000 Federal Government funding to create and upgrade walk and cycle trails, helping to boost tourism in the region.
The funding is a partnership between the Federal and State governments as part of the Tourism Demand Driver Infrastructure (TDDI) Program.
The program provides $43 million over four years to states and territories for key infrastructure projects that will drive tourism growth. Western Australia received $5.063 million in funding over four years, managed by the State Government through Tourism Western Australia.
The City of Swan will match the Federal Government funding and manage the project, helping to further grow tourism in the region.
The funding will be used to engage a consultant to plan, consult and investigate appropriate interpretation for the cycle and walk trails. These improved trails will meet visitor needs and include signage to educate visitors about the Swan Valley’s unique multicultural story.
The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions also received funding for two projects as part of the program in 2017-18, which will be used to upgrade a campground at Yanchep National Park and establish a vision for tourism infrastructure for Monkey Mia.
These are the final West Australian projects as part of the TDDI program, which has supported 19 tourism infrastructure initiatives across the State.
