Destination Management Planning

21 February 2013

The Government has identified that a key year one deliverable, under the Industry Action Plan for the Visitor Economy, is the implementation of a new Destination Management Planning (DMP) system for NSW.

Both the State and Federal Government have identified a key requirement for accessing future investment is a well-developed Destination Management Plan.

The Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism have published ‘The guide to best practice Destination Management‘ which is available at regionaltourism.com.au/Destination-Management. The guide provides an introduction to destination management and the process.

Destination NSW has developed a Destination Management Planning factsheet which provides information regarding destination management in NSW and what key information is required in a destination management plan.

Destination NSW encourages anyone involved in a destination management planning process to use the best practice guidelines and to read the Destination Management Planning fact sheet.

A Destination Management Plan template has been developed to outline the minimum level of information and analysis Destination NSW expects to be provided. A destination management plan does not need to use the Destination NSW template, however the information requested in the template will need to be supplied within the DMP developed.
