Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities Program
RECREATIONAL fishers, campers and boaters are set to benefit from new and improved infrastructure and facilities in NSW under the Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities Grants Program. A total of $4.2 million in grants is being provided to 16 coastal and inland NSW councils across 25 projects to improve amenities throughout the state.
The projects will cover a wide range of work including fish cleaning facilities, new boat ramps, improved access arrangements, campground upgrades, BBQ facilities and toilets. Just some of the great projects funded include two new fishing platforms along the Port Macquarie breakwall, boating safety and fishing facilities upgrades at Carcoar Dam and upgrades to fishing, boating and camping facilities throughout the Shoalhaven region.
A total of $20 million of program funding was made available from the Commonwealth government to all states and territories to provide Australian tourists with more and improved amenities as they travel throughout the country.
