4. Driving Experiences

The review of the driving experience category is nearing finalisation. Tourism NSW and the RTA were significant contributors at a national forum which reviewed the Australian Standard for tourist signposting in June 2007.

The review of this category will deliver an enhanced signage treatment which will meet the needs of the visitor and will allow the NSW tourism industry new criteria under which to apply
