The Alpine Resorts Governance Reform project, part of the broader Alpine Resorts Futures Project has been launched by Victoria government. Notably, the reforms will assist the alpine sector to grow tourism and recreational opportunities, which will provide an important shot in the arm for regional economies.
“Victoria’s alpine resorts are important for tourism and important for jobs – we want to see them continue to flourish,” Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio said in a press statement.
The six Victorian resorts that are covered by the Alpine Resorts Governance Reform are Mt Buller, Falls Creek, Mount Hotham, Mount Baw Baw, Mt Stirling and Lake Mountain.
The proposed reform will replace a complex governance system and ensure resorts remain viable into the future.
“The current governance structure of Victoria’s alpine resorts is complex, the Alpine Resorts Futures Project will help provide a simpler framework for their sustainable management,” the Minister stated.
The Alpine Resorts Futures Project has three sub categories which address separate areas: Alpine Resorts Governance Reform Project, Alpine Resorts Climate Adaptation Project, and Southern Alpine Resort Reform Project.
