Business coaches to boost Aboriginal tourism

 

Seventeen Aboriginal tourism businesses will receive advice and mentoring for more than three years as part of the Government's $4.6 million Aboriginal Tourism Development Program 2015-2018, made possible by the Royalties for Regions program.

Only one in five visitors to WA participated in an Aboriginal tourism activity while on holiday in 2014-15, but almost three-quarters said they would be interested if such activities were more readily accessible.

The experiences are an essential component of the Government's strategy to raise the profile of regional tourism and increase visitor spend from $3.8 billion in regional WA last year to $4.75 billion by 2020.
