Join the  Department for Environment and Water (DEW) in developing a vision and shared plan to grow heritage tourism in South Australia, create jobs and stimulate economic activity.

There is significant potential to unlock South Australia’s heritage places and stories to create experiences that showcase our state’s distinctive history, enhance the unique appeal of SA, and encourage visitors to stay longer and spend more.

To guide how this potential is realised the South Australian Government, in collaboration with the Tourism Industry Council South Australia (TiCSA) and other key heritage tourism stakeholders, is developing a Heritage Tourism Strategy and Action Plan.

Workshops are being held across SA to gain input from tourism industry, the heritage sector, local government, Traditional Owners, and those with an interest in progressing heritage tourism. This input will help inform development of the strategy and action plan.

You are invited to attend one of the regional workshops – only 20 spaces available per workshop, get in quick to secure your place!
