Scenic Rim Regional Tourism Strategy

Scenic Rim's regional tourism strategy is based on sustainable tourism best practice principles and addresses the three pillars of sustainable tourism: Destination Development, Destination Marketing, and Destination Management. Council adopted the Scenic Rim Regional Tourism Strategy 2017-2021 in January 2017


The Scenic Rim Regional Tourism Strategy provides a framework to guide destination planning and management into the future. It is intended to be a living strategy that guides the development of innovative, viable and sustainable tourism activity.

A living strategy is one that is owned by the community, by the tourism industry and by government and embodies the essence and aspirations of Scenic Rim places and communities. The strategy reflects the intrinsic natural, social and cultural values of the Scenic Rim and supports strategies and actions that contribute to a strong and vibrant future for local communities set within a global context.

Accordingly, this living strategy is capable of adapting to changing conditions, local needs and issues and embodies a shared vision that lives within the minds and actions of the stakeholders and agencies involved in tourism.
