Glenworth Valley to host eco-tourism forum

Tourism business operators on the Coast are invited to an Ecotourism Morning Tea at Glenworth Valley on Friday, May 28.

In partnership with Ecotourism Australia, Destination Central Coast will outline benefits and opportunities available for tourism businesses in the region.

Sponsored by Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures, the half-day industry event will include sessions led by Ecotourism Australia CEO, Rod Hillman, and Relationships Manager, Alyssa Sanders, aimed at local nature-based tourism operators who want to explore ecotourism opportunities for their business.

There will also be stories shared by local ECO Certified operators and refreshments, a casual lunch and a chance to chat for all who attend.

Participants will learn more about the Central Coast’s journey to achieve internationally-recognised ECO Destination Certification by 2022, which can help to protect and support the region’s natural assets.

Destination Central Coast is managing the region’s application with the goal of improving the overall visitor economy and creating ecotourism opportunities for business owners.

A special funding incentive for the Coast’s nature-based businesses ready to take the next step toward ECO Certification will be announced at the event.

It will take place from 9:30am-1pm on Friday, May 28, in the Rainforest Room at The Valley Events Centre.

Admission is free but registrations are essential before Friday May, 21.
