Australian state inaugurates plan to encourage cultural tourism

( MENAFN )The Australia state of Western Australian (WA) inaugurated an arrangement to encourage aboriginal cultural tourism there.

The Tjina: Western Australian Aboriginal Tourism Action Plan includes a fund worth 20 million Australian dollars (about USD15.48 million) to hold up Aboriginal people to work in that sector and to boost the unused tourism potential of the scenically spectacular areas of the state like the Dampier Peninsular in the Kimberly region.

The arrangement was set by Tourism Western Australia and other government agencies with the Western Australian Indigenous Tourism Operators Council (WAITOC) and the Aboriginal tourism industry.

WA Tourism Minister David Templeman in launching the plan stated that "There is incredible demand for Aboriginal experiences - the Tjina Plan will make sure people will get to have that experience they are looking for while they are travelling around WA."
