Kimberly on trackThe West Australia State Government progresses the creation of the second largest marine park in Australia aiding Kimberly to become a world-class ecotourism destination

 
Premier and Tourism and Science Minister Colin Barnett said the Great Kimberley Marine Park would cover more than three million hectares and would solidify the State as one of the world’s greatest ecotourism destinations.

 
“The strategy recognises the Kimberley region can be a world-class, ecotourism destination to rival the likes of the Great Barrier Reef and Kakadu National Park,” Barnett said.

 
The 2016-17 State Budget has provided an extra $22.1 million, including $10.09 million from Royalties for Regions, to Kimberley marine and national parks, including the creation of the Great Kimberley Marine Park, the Kimberley National Park and Horizontal Falls.

 
The investment is part of the State Government’s Kimberley Science and Conservation Strategy, which now has a commitment of $103.6 million to protect the region’s unique assets.

 
Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said investing in science and conservation had a clear ecotourism benefit, creating economic opportunities for WA’s regions.
