We are delighted to welcome the first Australian observatory into our growing global network and I am confident we will be able to work together to advance responsible, sustainable tourism across the South-West region of Australia.”

 

Western Australian Minister for Tourism Paul Papalia added: “WA’s South West region is one of WA’s most popular tourism destinations – one that holds a special place in the heart of all West Australians. This destination is renowned for its spectacular coastline, stunning forests and world-class food and wine.
