The District Council of Lower Eyre Peninsula is supporting the City of Port Lincoln’s draft Port Lincoln and Southern Eyre Tourism Strategy.

As part of the initiative, a joint marketing strategy will be developed amongst the Southern Eyre Peninsula councils in conjunction with RDA Whyalla & Eyre Peninsula and the South Australian Tourism Commission. 

The strategy estimates that $411,600 would be spent in the first three years in addition to the employment of a Tourism Development Officer as a shared resource between the three councils. 

Council CEO Rod Pearson said that Council believes the roles of existing community development officers, visitor information centre staff and the RDA Whyalla & Eyre Peninsula Tourism Officer need to be assessed before they can commit to any funding for a new ‘Regional Tourism Development Officer’ role.
