Big boost for tourism in Coromandel

Big boost for tourism in Coromandel

Coromandel MP Scott Simpson says he’s delighted a tourism business that started in Hahei is getting government financial support for a new project.

Bachcare - which began in Hahei – is receiving $123,500 funding to develop Bachcare Experiences, which will customize activities for holiday-makers.

Coromandel MP Scott Simpson says “The funding is from the Tourism Growth Partnership; we’re supporting innovative projects, such as Bachcare Experiences, which will create growth in the tourism industry.”

Scott Simpson MP says “More and more tourists are choosing self-catering accommodation. As Bachcare manages and rents more than 300 holiday homes across our region, they’re in a prime position to deliver uniquely Coromandel experiences to our visitors. This is great news for our guests and great news for our tourism operators.”

The Tourism Growth Partnership is investing $32 million over four years to support innovative projects. It is a co-investment programme, meaning that for each project approved for investment, the Government will provide up to 50 per cent of the required funding.

A second round of funding is now open for applications and closes at the end of the month.

Tourism operators interested in working with Bachcare on this new project can contact leslie@bachcare.co.nz.

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>

PSA: Minister Should Stop Dodging On Salisbury School
