Extra $3m sweetener in forestry deal

THE State Government has committed another $3 million to South West communities suffering in the wake of the about-face over the Regional Forest agreement and the adoption of the Ferguson Report that goes even further to protecting old growth forest.

Acting Environment Minister Kevin Prince said $2 million was set aside for a major new tourism attraction as part of the State Government’s plan to develop tourism icons in WA’s South West.

Mr Prince said the new attraction would feature some of the State’s tallest karri trees.

“Designed to increase visitor traffic through Nannup and Manjimup, the new forest icon will boost tourism and community development in the region by giving visitors an added attraction and experience.”

The Minister said the Government had decided to conduct a public competition for the forest icon project giving all Western Australians, in particular the people of the South-West, an opportunity to present their ideas and suggestions.
