The region will receive a $10.5 million redevelopment fund which will deliver quality beachfront accommodation and tourism experiences.
The significant project would create a seamless landscape on the foreshore and provided a catalyst for long-term social, economic and cultural benefits. Premier Colin Barnett and Regional Development Minister Terry Redman said in a media statement.
The $10.5 million redevelopment will include the development of three sites for tourism accommodation, the foreshore parade and extra parking spaces to accommodate the increase in visitors to the area. The large-scale venture complements other priority projects such as the refurbishment of the Busselton Jetty.
Redman said the Royalties for Regions investment would create a focal point for tourists and locals, and strengthened the social and economic fabric of the entire South-West region.
“The South-West is Western Australia’s most visited regional area and the redeveloped Busselton foreshore will create an attractive investment proposition for private hotel developers and generate a substantial economic stimulus for West Australians,” the Premier said.
