Tourism investment opportunities of significance making a proposal package

Friday 1 November, 2013

The Minister for Environment and Climate Change, the Honourable Ryan Smith, has released the Tourism investment opportunities of significance making a proposal package.

The proposal package will assist potential investors who are interested in developing tourism opportunities of significance in Victoria’s national parks.

Proposals will not be considered in 37 per cent of national parks estate in areas classified as wilderness parks, wilderness zones, remote and natural areas, closed water catchments, natural catchment areas and reference areas. A map of Victoria is included in the proposal package, and shows the areas where investment proposals will and will not be considered.

The package will help guide interested parties through the process of application whilst protecting environmental values.

Guidelines, the proposal package and state map on the DEPI website at: www.depi.vic.gov.au/forestry-and-land-use/visiting-parks-and-forests/national-parks-tourism-investment
