Sustainable Tourism – the key to Gloucester’s economic future.
Tourism is everyone’s business. The Visitor Economy of the Gloucester region contributes $51 million annually to the local economy (as at Sep 2014). The statistics for the whole country are compiled by the independent body Tourism Research Australia and then the New South Wales reports are published by the state government on DestinationNSW website.

Do you run a business that serves visitors in Gloucester or in the surrounding valleys and villages around Gloucester? These visitors can be daytrippers from neighbouring regions, business travellers, people visiting friends and relatives in Gloucester, or tourists passing through or those staying overnight. Then you may wish to be part of this sustainable industry. Download the Membership Prospectus for more details.
Whilst other information centres are being closed across the state, we are very lucky to have the financial support of Gloucester Shire Council to keep our Visitor Information Centre open. However it’s the membership fees of the local operators that provide the marketing funds.
Your support of our Visitor Economy via membership of Gloucester-Barrington Tops Tourism is essential for the destinational marketing of our beautiful region. Marketing opportunities are severely limited without your paid membership. There are several membership levels to choose from, and the membership criteria is listed in the Membership Prospectus. We invite you to join us.
Don’t forget to check out the regular advertisements of Everyone’s Business issued by Gloucester Barrington Tops Tourism and published in the Gloucester Advocate.
The importance of regional partnerships
We appreciate that inland destinations are sometimes overlooked by the masses travelling the coastal routes, so it’s important for the small tourism operators from around the Barrington Tops region to combine their efforts.
.…Collaboration is the word and marketing efficiences is the aim.
So we invite our local tourism operators to participate in the successful marketing cooperative called The Legendary Pacific Coast run by the North Coast Destination Network.
