Premier Colin Barnett and Regional Development Minister Terry Redman announced a $10.5 Million redevelopment of Busselton foreshore to deliver quality beachfront accommodation and tourism experiences.
“The South-West is Western Australia’s most visited regional area and the redeveloped Busselton foreshore will create an attractive investment proposition for private hotel developers and generate a substantial economic stimulus for West Australians.” Premier Barnett said.
“Visitation to the region will also be supported with the $59.7 Million Busselton-Margaret River Regional Airport expansion project that will improve accessibility for interstate visitors.”
“Busselton is also becoming a hugely popular cruise ship destination. By the end of 2015-16, the city will have welcomed seven cruise ship visits with more than 12,000 passengers plus crew. Nine cruise ship visits to Busselton are already confirmed for the future.” Premier Barnett said.
The $10.5 Million redevelopment will include the development of three sites for tourism accommodation, the foreshore parade and extra parking spaces to accommodate the increase in visitors to the area. The large-scale venture complements other priority projects such as the refurbishment of the Busselton Jetty.
Mr. Redman said the Royalties for Regions investment would create a focal point for tourists and locals, and strengthened the social and economic fabric of the entire South-West region.
