Pilbara Tourism Infrastructure Strategy


CLIENT: Pilbara Development Commission

The Pilbara’s Regional Investment Blueprint identified tourism as a key opportunity to drive diversification of the region’s economy.  Led by the Pilbara Development Commission, RFF was appointed to identify the key infrastructure gaps, which were impacting on more rapid development of the tourism industry.

Through extensive stakeholder and community engagement on the ground, our team successfully mapped-out critical path items requiring government support, which could transform the Pilbara into a genuine tourism destination by making its natural environmental attributes more accessible to domestic caravanners, bypassing the region, as well as higher-value international tourists.

The outcomes were subsequently adopted by the Pilbara Development Commission as its main Tourism Development Strategy, focused on the National Parks of Millstream, Murujuga and Karajini.
