Understand the bigger picture: Strategies and plans

NSW Visitor Economy Strategy 2030

The NSW Government’s Visitor Economy Strategy (VES) 2030 provides a roadmap to support the visitor economy's recovery from recent challenges (drought, bushfires and COVID-19) and promote future growth.

Destination Riverina Murray is currently supporting Destination NSW in implementing this strategy to achieve the visitation and expenditure targets for regional NSW. 

The Riverina Murray Destination Management Plan 2030 (see below) is strategically aligned to this VES.

Riverina Murray Destination Management Plan 2030

The 2030 Riverina Murray Destination Management Plan (DMP) is the key strategic document to drive and promote growth in the region’s tourism industry. This DMP identifies strategic development themes, priority projects and infrastructure that will encourage both private and public-sector investment in the tourism sector and stimulate increased visitation to the region.

We are currently delivering this plan in partnership with Destination NSW, Murray Regional Tourism, Visit Riverina, NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, Local Governments and the tourism industry.

Riverina Murray Agritourism Development Strategy 2033

The Riverina Murray Destination Management Plan (above) notes that whilst the region is known as the food bowl of NSW, there is a disproportionate lack of agritourism and associated local dining and produce to capitalise on this point of regional differentiation.

In response to this DMP priority, this agritourism strategy provides the directions needed to grow a differentiated and competitive agritourism sector in the NSW Riverina Murray region, that will leverage the strength of the agriculture sector to strengthen the appeal of visiting the region, and enhance the benefits of the region's visitor economy.
