WAMA STRATEGY AND OBJECTIVES 2021-2023
WAMA’s strategy is to maximise its operational credibility ‘on the ground’ through delivering a $9 million operating facility and wildlife precinct 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 learning.
Specifically, this will consist of people and nature friendly buildings and outdoor spaces, gardens, woodlands and wetlands, experiential learning programs and workshops.
It is widely acknowledged that tourism infrastructure does not live up to the iconic natural mountain environment in the Grampians region and WAMA will provide an eco-tourism destination like no other within Australia.
A MAJOR BOOST TO REGIONAL TOURISM
WAMA will complement current infrastructure and investment initiatives, growing the visitor economy by significantly enriching culture and eco-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.
