The Destination Networks Country and Outback NSW Management Plan exist to guide industry on priorities strategies and required actions that will drive the growth of the visitor economy at a regional level. The plan provides the foundations on which future local plans can be built and updated to provide a common vision. This document is an adaptable plan that will be reviewed annually by DNCO in consultation with Destination NSW and industry stakeholders.
Following the development of DNCO’s Destination Management 2018-2020 (DMP), a comprehensive Product & Experience Audit has been undertaken. The approach was to undertake the project covering the entire DNCO region clustered into 11 hubs, consistent with the DMP, to identify the gaps in what information is available to potential visitors planning a trip (in source markets), including would to see and do as well as what they can book either online or through a phone channel.
