Agritourism in the Southwest: Better than Going Abroad Post-COVID

Research output: Book/ReportOther output

Abstract

Summary of Key Findings
• Agritourism provides a critical means for introducing money into the Western Australian economy as COVID-19 restrictions are eased.
• Western Australian industries have a ‘first-mover’ advantage, given the State’s low infection and community transmission rates, and quick reopening of the economy.
• Agritourism is associated with industry sectors that have some of the highest multiplier effects in the Australian economy.
• Agritourism is based on an exchange of experiences which can help educate both agritourism providers and visitors, and connect rural and regional economies to communities across the state, nation and abroad.
• Better understanding of these experiences, will allow agritourism providers and authorities to develop and promote regional brands to increase both domestic and international sales.
