Local Government Pathways

Supporting local and regional government to grow sustainable tourism

The Pathways program supports local and regional bodies to establish management frameworks and operating practices which facilitate sustainable tourism growth.

This tailor-made program is designed to help local partners and stakeholders to develop a holistic approach to the sustainable management and development of their local tourism industry and their broader economy.
