A sky-high maze of tree houses connected by nets and slides will be the newest tourist attraction for the region, following a NSW Government grant win by Ourimbah’s TreeTops Adventure Park.
Member of the Legislative Council, Taylor Martin, said the Park will receive $149,000 from the Regional Tourism Fund, which is managed by the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW. “The TreeTops Adventure Park already provides a broad range of unique and exciting outdoor experiences for people of all ages and abilities, so I am delighted that this NSW Government funding will allow them to add to their existing tourism offering,” Mr Martin said. Martin said the new feature would also work in harmony with the landscape, not against it, in a win for environmentally sustainable tourism.
“The proposed design of the net park preserves the natural environment. “Each treehouse is built around the existing tree structure and the nets are cut to size and installed around them,” he said. Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Adam Marshall, congratulated TreeTops Adventure Park on their successful application. “The Regional Tourism Fund is part of our strategy to boost tourism right across NSW and aims to increase visitation to our wonderful regions, such as the Central Coast, which in turn, supports the local economy and jobs,” Marshall said. “Right across our regions we’re working hard to make it easier for event proponents, tour operators, hoteliers, and visitor attractions to access vital grants to get their initiatives off the ground and to get tourism booming. “We look forward to welcoming more travellers to the Central Coast region as a result of this funding boost,” he added.
