Have your say

THE WA Government is investing another $1.072 million in improving caravan and camping grounds in the State's Mid-West.

Dandaragan, Coorow, Irwin and Northampton shires will use the money to develop new nature-based campgrounds across seven coastal areas, adding 300 sites.

Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said the Royalties for Regions funding would provide attractive and functional camping areas with appropriate amenities such as designated camping areas, walkways, eco toilets and rubbish bins.

"It will encourage more visitors to explore our regions through caravan and camping holidays by establishing attractive and affordable coastal destinations for intrastate, interstate and overseas tourists," he said.

The project built on the Government's Caravan and Camping Action Plan and aimed to make WA the nation's most attractive caravan and camping destination.

"Regional tourism is an important contributor to the State's economy," Mr Redman said.

"In 2015, visitors spent $4 billion while visiting regional WA.

"Creating new opportunities for regional tourism helps to boost regional economies contributing to the sustainable development of regional Western Australia."

The Royalties for Regions program has allocated $6.9 billion into more than 3700 projects across regional WA since 2008.
