WA commits to cruise industry
WEST Australian Tourism Minister Paul Papalia last night pledged his strong support for the growing WA cruise sector.
Speaking at the opening event of the Australian Cruise Association Conference in Broome, Papalia said he was “absolutely committed to growing our tourism sector through supporting the cruising industry”.
Port development initiatives include dredging of Broome Harbour plus work at Geraldton, Fremantle and other destinations to make them more cruise-friendly.
“The entire government is behind making sure cruise ships have priority when it comes to accessing regional ports,” he said.
