Masterplan to pave way for sensitive tourism opportunities at Point Nepean

15 /04/ 2013 Comments are Closed

The state’s peak tourism industry body has welcomed the release of the Point Nepean National Park Masterplan, saying the plan provides a framework to shape appropriate and sensitive tourism development.

Victoria Tourism Industry Council (VTIC) Chief Executive Dianne Smith says, “This plan shows real vision for a site that has so much unfulfilled potential and sets out sensible and appropriate options for Point Nepean.

“This site is a truly compelling historic place for Victoria and Australia, and a destination that appeals to domestic and international visitors.”

The Masterplan was released after significant community consultation and looks to highlight the natural environment and cultural history of Point Nepean.

“Increased visitor activity at Point Nepean will benefit the local and state economy, providing jobs and economic activity long into the future,” says Ms Smith.

“Importantly, an existing footprint will be used and we urge the Government to maintain this focus on appropriate and sensitive tourism development at the Point Nepean site.

“There must be a collaborative approach to implementing this Masterplan from all stakeholders, including industry, and state and local government, to ensure the site is developed into a sustainable tourism destination that considers the environmental sensitivities of the area.

“We applaud the Victorian Government for the considered planning this Masterplan demonstrates and welcome this release so soon after the guidelines on private investment in Victoria’s national parks were released.”
