Gate Opens to New Agritourism Opportunities

The NSW Government’s final agritourism policy has come into effect, making it simpler and easier for farmers to start and operate agritourism businesses across the state.

Farmers can now diversify their income by including agritourism experiences through fast-tracked, or without, planning approvals.

The NSW Government will work with councils to monitor the policy and how it’s operating, and make sure it’s balancing the needs of farmers and the community.

Further information including the position of DSSS, useful industry resources and links are available on our agritourism page.
