A COMBINATION of school holidays and the Easter period saw a massive increase in tourism numbers in the Riverland over the weekend, boosting the local economy.
DESTINATION Riverland (DR) this week received a $20,000 Federal Government funding boost to develop a strategic tourism plan for 2030 and ultimately maximise the region’s visitation and economic yield.
THE Riverland’s peak tourism body spokesperson says a number of roadworks being completed around the region will fail to deter visitors during the upcoming Easter long weekend.
DESTINATION Riverland (DR) last week launched a new, innovative program that offers marketing opportunities to local operators through a collaborative approach.
THE Riverland has continued kicking tourism goals by contributing to the state’s record number of guests and boosting South Australia’s visitor economy to an all-time-high of $6.9 billion, according to new figures.
A NEW, collaborative approach to tourism was celebrated at a Destination Riverland (DR) networking event on Wednesday night to coincide with the official launch of the region’s latest visitor publications.
THREE Riverland businesses were crowned best in their category at a prestigious state tourism awards ceremony on Friday night.
RIVERLAND tourism experiences will be showcased on a state platform next month when 10 local businesses compete in a prestigious awards ceremony.
