Tourism boost funds for Monkey Mia

October 14 (TravelAndy): Monkey Mia in Western Australia will benefit from $40,000 in Federal Government funding to help develop world-class visitor facilities, experiences and tourism infrastructure.

The funding is a partnership between the Federal and State governments as part of the Tourism Demand Driver Infrastructure (TDDI) program.

The program provides $43 million over four years to States and Territories for key infrastructure projects that will drive tourism growth. Western Australia received $5.063 million in funding over four years, managed by the State Government through Tourism Western Australia.

The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions will match the Federal Government funding and manage the project.

The funding will go towards engaging architects to develop concept plans and preliminary designs for the future development of the Department’s tourism infrastructure in the Monkey Mia area.

Currently, the place is a resort with space for parking campervans and luxury rooms by the beach. Wild dolphins visit the beach nearly every morning for the fish that the resort staff feed them and this gives the visitors an opportunity to interact with the playful mammals.
