The Western Australian government has announced a $10.5 million redevelopment of Busselton to accommodate the local tourism industry.
Western Australian Premier, Colin Barnett, said a majority of the improvements will be made to Busselton’s foreshore.
"The South-West is Western Australia's most visited regional area and the redeveloped Busselton foreshore will create an attractive investment proposition for private hotel developers and generate a substantial economic stimulus for West Australians," Barnett said.
"Visitation to the region will also be supported with the $59.7 million Busselton-Margaret River Regional Airport expansion project that will improve accessibility for interstate visitors.”
The construction will envision a newly refurbished beachfront, including accommodation and tourism experiences.
Minister for Regional Development, Terry Redman, said the project is being funded as part of the Royalties for Regions program.
"Busselton is also becoming a hugely popular cruise ship destination. By the end of 2015-16, the city will have welcomed seven cruise ship visits with more than 12,000 passengers plus crew,” Redman said.
“Nine cruise ship visits to Busselton are already confirmed for the future."
The project is expected for completion in 2017.
