Whole of Country Tourism Strategy
Gugu Badhun Aboriginal Corporation
Plan C engaged with Gugu Badhun Aboriginal Corporation to prepare a Whole of Country Tourism Strategy to identify the aspirations of the Gugu Badhun people with regards to tourism and the opportunities to fulfil these aspirations.
Building on the Gugu Badhun People Community Plan and Strategic Plan, the Whole of Country Tourism Plan seeks to guide the understanding and development of the tourism aspirations of Gugu Badhun people on Country.
