Survey to gauge Gnomesville Easter visitors
Are you visiting Gnomesville over the Easter break?
The Shire of Dardanup is conducting a survey of visitors to the local tourist attraction and surrounding Ferguson Valley to better understand its value to the local economy.
Data collected will assist the Shire of Dardanup in creating applications to external funding bodies for support with progressing projects outlined in the Council’s Gnomesville Master Plan.
The Master Plan was developed in consultation with a dedicated working group whose members were drawn from Ferguson Valley Marketing, the Wellington Mills community, Shire Councillors and staff.
The purpose of the Plan is to guide site improvements in a sensitive and sustainable manner, providing an enhanced visitor experience through improved access, safety, amenity and environment while respecting the rights of adjoining private property owners.
It recognises the unique character of Gnomesville as an important tourism destination.
Included in proposed upgrades are:
- Accessible toilets
- Upgraded carparking
- Small viewing decks
- Shade shelter with seating
- Directional signage
- Elevated bridge across the creek
- Improved, accessible pathways
Council agreed at its December 12 meeting to consider allocating $50,000 in its 2019/20 Budget to commence works outlined in the Master Plan however additional funding grants will need to be sought.
