Upgraded Ferry Park boosts Valley tourism



CLARENCE mayor Ian Tiley has officially opened the Clarence River Tourist Association's upgraded Clarence Coast Visitor Information Centre at Ferry Park, Maclean.

Traditional industries such as sugar cane, commercial fishing and agriculture generate $187 million to the Clarence Valley economy annually ? tourism generates $194.1 million.

More than 131,500 visitors access the Clarence Valley visitor information centres at Grafton and Maclean each year.

The manager of Clarence River Tourism, Jenny Massie, said the visitor information centres were an important component of Clarence Valley Council's infrastructure to encourage longer stays and increased tourism spending in the Clarence Valley.

The renovation to improve visitor information facilities and the refurbishment of the Ferry Park complex would build on the visitor numbers and reward the Clarence Valley with greater economic benefits.
