Planned Tourism Accommodation

More than $1.4billion of tourist accommodation is being planned throughout Western Australia, a massive $41.5million more than 2007.

Tourism Minister Sheila McHale said today that 134 tourism projects were either in the planning phase or under construction, according to figures from the Tourism Accommodation Development Register.

“There are 86 projects in the planning phase and if they all materialise, an extra 5,285 new rooms will be available, which will boost tourism and create more jobs for Western Australians,” Ms McHale said

“There are 48 projects worth about $428million currently under construction and once complete, more than 1,459 new rooms will be available.

“In addition to projects planned or under construction, 29 projects worth nearly $100million were completed during 2007, creating 1,238 new rooms in Western Australia.”

The Minister said while major tourism accommodation projects were planned, underway or completed across the Western Australia, the South-West region of Western Australia in particular showed a significant amount of tourism development activity.

“The South-West continues to grow, with 32 projects worth more than $684million in the pipeline - including the $330million Canal Rocks Development in Yallingup,” Ms McHale said.

Perth has 21 tourism projects worth $374million in the planning stage, set to add 1,243 hotel rooms to the accommodation register.

“The majority of these developments are outside the Perth central business district. However, two significant hotel developments planned for inner-city Perth will help alleviate overflowing hotels in Perth by creating 156 new rooms.

“The Coral Coast region has nearly $74million worth of projects under construction, including the Mariner Resort, worth $20million, which will provide nearly 100 self-catering units.

“The Golden Outback region has nearly $54million worth of projects in the planning stage and it’s also encouraging to see development of four caravan parks completed during 2007.

“Five projects were completed in the Western Australia's North-West region worth $29million, providing 664 extra hotel rooms for the region, including an eco retreat in Karijini National Park.”
