WAMA STRATEGY AND OBJECTIVES 2019-2021
WAMA’s strategy is to maximise its operational credibility ‘on the ground’ through delivery of a privately funded $6 million, operating facility within the next 3 years.
The aim is to create beautiful, stimulating spaces and environments where people want to contribute, participate and engage in nature through art and education.
Specifically, this will consist of people and nature friendly buildings and outdoor spaces, gardens, woodlands and wetlands, programs and workshops.
A MAJOR BOOST TO REGIONAL TOURISM
WAMA will complement current infrastructure and investment initiatives.
WAMA will grow the visitor economy by significantly enriching nature-based and cultural tourism in the Grampians region including:
- Great Southern Touring Route
- Grampians Peaks Trail
- Domestic tourism strategy
- International tourism strategy
- Grampians link road
- Halls Gap Village Masterplan
WAMA will establish the Grampians as a destination for international visitors seeking world class cultural and nature experiences.
WAMA will increase potential for other high end investments in accommodation, food and convention facilities.
