The state government is seeking input from the private sector to develop a new ecotourism project in the Margaret River region.
Tourism Minister Kim Hames announced today that Wharncliffe Mill, in Bramley National Park, would be released as part of the government’s Naturebank program.
Dr Hames said the mill had the potential to be developed into a quality eco-tourism operation.
Wharncliffe Mill was operational until 1987 and in 2004 was upgraded as an eco-discovery centre, complete with 42-guest bunkhouse.
The program is being managed by Tourism WA and funded from Royalties for Regions.
