Regional Tourism Development Strategy                           The Shire of Capel, in conjunction with six other Local Government Authorities, have jointly formed a Regional Tourism Group to investigate the development of Tourism for the Bunbury Wellington Region.

To date, a brief has been developed, and a "Request to Tender" is currently being advertised for a Consultant to undertake an analysis, and develop a "Regional Tourism Development Strategy 2015-2019". It is intended that the successful Consultant will confer with interested Stakeholders via a workshop as part of the development process of the Strategy.

If you are interested in Tourism, or have a business related to tourism then please email info@capel.wa.gov.au with Regional Tourism in the subject line, prior to October 24th 2014.
Please include your business name, business activity, your name and contact details. This information will be forwarded to the Consultant, who will contact you directly.

For further information regarding this Strategy, please contact Michelle Plume at the Shire of Capel Administration Centre on 9727 0222.
