Driving Growth of the Visitor Economy in Regional NSW

The NSW Government on July 6, 2016 announced it would invest $43 million over four years in a major overhaul in the way regional and rural areas attract visitors, including the creation of six new Destination Networks throughout NSW.

Destination Networks (DNs) have replaced Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO) structure.
