Source: NSW Dept. of Environment and Climate Change
"The New South Wales Government has accepted the recommendations of a report focusing on ways to enhance tourism in the state’s national parks, marine parks and reserves. The report, by the State Government’s 10 member Tourism and National Parks Taskforce, recommends sustainable tourism is included as a clear objective in national parks legislation. Other key recommendations contained in the report include: allocating increased funding for marketing and promotion campaigns to attract visitors to parks and reserves; and focussing on iconic experiences in key natural areas close to Sydney and within three hours drive of major airports in Newcastle, the Gold Coast, Ballina, Coffs Harbour and Canberra."
