THE region’s tourism industry will get a luxurious boost with the addition of three new eco-wilderness cabins.
The eco-wilderness cabins were officially opened in the Glenworth Valley last month by Member of the Legislative Council, Taylor Martin MLC and Federal Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks.
Mr Martin said the cabins had been built with the support of a $300,000 grant from the Tourism Demand-Driver Infrastructure program, a Commonwealth funded initiative administered by the NSW Government to increase local tourism
“Glenworth Valley is one of the Central Coast’s tourist gems and these new luxury eco-wilderness cabins will make the area even more attractive to both Australian and international visitors helping boost our visitor economy,” Mr Martin said.
“The 4.5 star two-bedroom cabins are spacious catering for up to four people each and offer luxury modern accommodation with stunning outlooks of wilderness and paddocks framed through floor to ceiling windows.
Tourism contribution
Federal Member for Robertson, Lucy Wicks MP said that the Commonwealth’s National TDDI program has provided around $9.25M in funding which has delivered 41 projects in NSW.
“This is another fantastic example of what we can achieve for the Central Coast when different levels of Government work together on a project,” Mrs Wicks said.
“This funding helps deliver projects which contribute to Tourism 2020 outcomes such as boosting overnight visitor spending to more than $115B by 2020 (up from $70B in 2009).
Tourism Minister Adam Marshall said the Central Coast attracted nearly 1.4 million domestic and a further 65,800 international overnight visitors in the year to March who collectively spent just over $540 million in the region.
“Nature-based tourism is growing fast and the NSW Government is developing a major new strategy to help regional areas like the Central Coast capitalise on this. Investing in wonderful assets like these cabins will keep the visitors coming.”
Glenworth Valley Outdoor Adventures CEO Mary Rayner said she expected the cabins to be very popular across the board for families, weddings, romantic getaways, international tourists, and corporate visitors to a new on-site event centre.
