World News – UA – Record investment in South Australian parks

Liberal Marshall government's record investment in South Australia's parks to receive an additional $ 17 million increase in the next state budget 2020-2021

The record investment by Marshall’s Liberal government in South Australia’s parks will see an additional $ 17 million increase in the next 2020-2021 state budget to improve tourism focused on nature statewide

The new funding brings the total investment in South Australian parks under the Liberal Marshall government to more than $ 130 million – the highest in state history

Parks in South Australia including Flinders Ranges, Yorke Peninsula, Eyre Peninsula, Fleurieu Peninsula, Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills will be revitalized, which will stimulate tourism and the number of visitors, improve the facilities in our parks and create jobs

Prime Minister Steven Marshall says record investment of over $ 130 million in our state’s parks will strengthen our reputation as a world-class eco-tourism destination and boost regional economies

« The Liberal government wants South Australia’s tourism industry to thrive – this is a one-time investment in a generation that will not only support regional communities and create local jobs, but also protect our precious environment for future generations, « Prime Minister Marshall said

« We are investing in projects that will revitalize the parks of South Australia – from the Flinders Ranges to Kangaroo Island, as well as the opening of our reservoirs

« This is part of our plan to keep South Australians safe and strong by creating jobs, supporting businesses and building what matters »

Environment and Water Minister David Speirs says the Liberal Marshall government’s Parks 2025 initiative is pumping record amounts of funding into South Australia’s national parks

« The new investment will fund a range of projects, from new visitor facilities and campgrounds to adventure experiences such as mountain biking and hiking trails across the state and improved access to South Australian reservoirs, « said Minister Speirs

« This is in addition to already funded nature-based tourism projects, such as the development of an adventure destination in the southern Flinders Ranges, as well as significantly improved visitor facilities on the island Kangaroo

« The record-breaking investment from the Liberal Marshall government will help us meet our goal of doubling state tourism spending on nature and heritage to $ 3-4 billion over the next decade, creating 4,000 new jobs

« The previous government inexplicably wrested funds from our parks, while Marshall’s Liberal government is injecting record amounts to increase visitor numbers and preserve our natural environment

« These upgrades will not only improve our environment, but improve social well-being by encouraging more people to get out there, connect with nature and enjoy what our state has to offer, which we have seen is so important during the COVID-19 pandemic « 

– Increase in fire risk reduction ($ 18 million) to increase prescribed burn program in parks by up to 50%

– Ediacara Fossil Experience ($ 3 million) to create a major tourist experience in Nilpena to showcase our unique 550 million year old Ediacaran fossils
