Pitching For Success!

The Braidwood & Villages Tourism Development Workshop was held last Friday morning, with feedback from the participants confirming it was a resounding success, enriched by the smoking ceremony and opening led by the Walbunja Rangers.

Five community members, hand selected from a wide range of applicants, presented their tourism plans to an expert panel.  Ideas were creative and varied, from gin schools to highland cultural tours and heritage trails. As well as ideas around centralising and organising local events and activities.

A highlight was the pitch from Brian Roberts, one of our skilled business volunteers whose insights captivated the room. The last photo shows the working group that has been pivotal in steering these initiatives over the past months.

After the presentations, ideas were workshopped in small groups with experts and entrepreneurs collaborating to progress the project.

One participant said, “ I appreciated being involved in the process and feel privileged to be around such knowledgeable people who are, humbly, willing to share their knowledge”.

We thank all of those who were involved, from the experts to the working group and those who submitted entries. This workshop is a part of the larger Braidwood & Villages Destination Management Plan to increase tourism visitors to the region. 

The Disaster Risk Reduction Fund (DRRF) is jointly funded by the Australian and New South Wales governments.
