FIRST TEN YEAR TOUR OPERATOR LICENCE ISSUED TO LOCAL OPERATOR

22 /02/ 2012 Comments are Closed

Parks Victoria has issued the first ten year licence to long term tour operator Alan Fenner from Victorian walking company Park Trek Walking Holidays. The new ten year licence tenure is a key outcome from the review of the licensing system for tour operators and activity providers on public land in Victoria.

“Park Trek values the security of tenure, the efficiency gains and the support for our longevity that is embodied in the ten year licensing programme,” said Mr Fenner.

“As an operation that is into its twelfth year, our focus is very much over the longer term. Parks Victoria’s development and upgrading of walking trail networks such as the Great Ocean Walk throughout our national parks has provided an excellent platform for the success of a clean green business such as Park Trek.”

“Parks Victoria greatly values our licensed tour operators and the important role they play as part of Victoria’s dynamic nature-based tourism industry,” said Dr Bill Jackson, CE Parks Victoria.

“I congratulate Alan on being the first of our operators to achieve the new ten year licence.

“The tour operator industry on public land generates conservatively $113 million in revenue a year which provides a significant flow on benefit to the Victorian economy and in particular regional communities.

“We know from our research that the ten-year-plus tour operator businesses tend to generate three times as much revenue as their newer counterparts.  Longer licence terms assist with securing Victorian businesses’ sustainability.”

Following on from the Park Trek’s ten year licence being approved and issued, six other tour operator businesses have been successful in obtaining ten year tenure with another two about to be finalised.
