Nambucca Shire Strategic Tourism Plan (NSSTP) 2018-2023
The Nambucca Shire instigated the development of a new Nambucca Shire Strategic Tourism Plan (NSSTP) 2018-2023 in late 2017. Recent major changes in the local tourism landscape include the Pacific Highway bypass and commercial lease of the Nambucca Visitor Information Centre. Regionally, the creation of the Destination North Coast Network and its associated Destination Management Plan 2018 to 2021 provides a new supporting framework for tourism in Nambucca Shire.
Dr Claire Ellis and Dr Meredith Wray are the independent consultants who have been engaged by Nambucca Shire Council for this project.
Workshops to gather input from community and industry are being run in Macksville at the Council offices on the following dates:
- Wednesday 7 March 2018: 3pm -5pm Stakeholder Workshop
- Thursday 8 March 2018: 9 am -11 am Stakeholder Workshop
- Thursday 8 March 2018: 2 pm -4 pm Stakeholder Workshop
