The nature-based tourism of South Australia gets $2.5 million boost

 Monday, June 28, 2021 


The inventive new tourism efforts include a new boat tour of a unique part of Encounter Marine Park on the Fleurieu Peninsula. It’s a new aerial adventure park set to be constructed in Kuitpo Forest in the Adelaide Hills. Additionally, two new nature-based commercial tour experiences will also be constructed that displays Reevesby Island, in the Sir Joseph Banks Group Conservation Park and a Pelagic Birds Tour, incorporating the Neptune Islands Conservation Park, where osprey, giant petrels and albatross like seabirds can be viewed, on Eyre Peninsula.

These projects have displayed local conservation, community and economic benefits and as part of their development, operators will add to the conservation programs like restoring habitats, re-vegetation and re-wilding projects.

David Speirs, the Minister for Environment and Water, have said that the Nature-Based Tourism Co-Investment Fund is a vital part of the Parks 2025 strategy of Marshall Liberal Government and record funding for the environment.

“We are investing record amounts to revitalise our parks, improve conservation, boost nature-based tourism and create jobs across the state,” Minister Speirs said.

“I congratulate the three organizations we have invited to partner with us in leveraging our investment to drive the visitor economy further and faster. These businesses will partner with the State Government to deliver sustainable, quality tourism experiences across South Australia.”

“I look forward to helping them build and foster new experiences to ensure we continue to deliver new visitor experiences and opportunities so all can enjoy and celebrate our wonderful parks, reservoirs and open spaces.”

“All of these new nature-based tourism ventures offer visitors special experiences in these natural places that nurture and broaden their environmental and cultural understanding and importantly contribute towards conservation projects such as restoring habitat or revegetation.”
