WELCOME MESSAGE FROM
HON ROGER COOK MLA, DEPUTY PREMIER MINISTER FOR TOURISM &
HON ALANNAH MACTIERNAN MLC, MINISTER FOR REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT
The McGowan Government is a proud sponsor of the Cape to Cape MTB through its Regional Events Program.
The program was devised as a way for the Government to support medium to large events in regional Western Australia to boost tourism, increase community vibrancy and participation, and develop regional areas.
The Regional Events Program also plays an important role in positioning Western Australia as an exciting destination to visit and a great place to live by showcasing and promoting a region’s unique and diverse attractions.
Tourism is a key part of the Government’s plan to diversify the economy, create jobs and develop business opportunities particularly to help regional economies and communities in Western Australia.
Events play an important role in this plan, with the Government sponsoring a range of sporting, cultural, arts and culinary events across the State, through Tourism Western Australia, to attract visitors, encourage them to stay longer, disperse further and do more while they are here.
We hope everyone enjoys this event and takes the time to explore the South West region.
