Destination Management Plan 2019

The Bathurst region has emerged from the perception of being simply a rural town, home to Mount Panorama and motorsports most famous endurance race the Bathurst Supercheap Auto 1000, to a tourism destination offering a growing number of exciting new tourism products and experiences.

Heritage listed buildings and rich history fuse with world-class museums and galleries. Spectacular natural wonders co-exist with a modern cultural landscape. The food scene is innovative and signature events are of an international standard.

In order to guide the future strategic direction of tourism in the Bathurst region and ensure a direction consistent with regional and State priorities, Bathurst Regional Council is preparing a new Destination Management Plan in 2019.

Why is a Destination Management Plan needed?

Council developed Bathurst’s first Destination Management Plan in 2015. This document aimed to be a focused and driven plan to increase tourism investment in the Bathurst Region. The Plan is a method of coordinating tourism development to achieve optimal results for the Bathurst region

The plan has been successfully delivered, with an overwhelming proportion of actions within the plan achieved within the past four years. Due to this success, it is time to update the plan with new actions and priorities to further progress tourism in the Bathurst Region over the next five years.

Have your say

In developing a new Destination Management Plan, we would like to hear from you how tourism could be improved, managed and maintained now and into the future. Come along to meet the project team at one of our events, ask any questions you may have and provide your feedback.
