Destination Management Plan

Ku-ring-gai Destination Management Plan 2017 to 2020

Council has developed a destination management plan that will help create new sustainable tourism activities and attractions in the future. Adopted by Council in July 2017 the Plan was prepared by tourism expert Dr Meredith Wray, who specialises in developing plans for managing and marketing sustainable tourism.

The community were involved in developing the plan with over 100 people attended workshops on the plan and 27 submissions were received during the public exhibition.

The plan focuses on five themes for developing tourism opportunities in Ku-ring-gai. These are nature-based tourism; major events; Aboriginal heritage; cultural and recreational experiences and architectural heritage. The Plan careful considers that any development and promotion of tourism celebrates and protects Ku-ring- gai’s distinctive natural and built environments whilst providing benefits for the local community.
