Western Australia’s rangelands cover around 87 per cent of the State’s land mass, and 75 per cent of its coastline. 

Many of the State’s iconic landscapes are located within these rangeland areas, and are home to unique attractions that help draw visitors to the State. 

While a number of tourism experiences including accommodation, tours and activities operate within this environment, the vast expanse, distances between destinations, and impact of seasonality presents challenges for existing and prospective tourism businesses.

Tourism WA has produced a publication to provide guidance on how tourism can best be developed on WA’s rangelands in order to meet these challenges and deliver high quality unique experiences.

The publication covers gaps in product, challenges and potential opportunities. 

It also outlines principles to support sustainable tourism development and provides case studies. 

In addition, information and links to other resources on tenure and legislative and regulatory approval requirements are also provided to assist potential proponents in understanding these matters.
