Cultural tourism development in the NSW Central West region is one of the key strategic focus areas of Arts OutWest.
In our strategic plan we aim to:
- Create material that showcases the region’s culture to tourists
- Create partnerships with providers and promoters of tourism
- Partner on events and projects that provide outcomes in building cultural tourism
- Create networks that support cultural tourism
Culture Maps Central NSW
In 2020 we launched Culture Maps Central NSW – arts and culture maps for finding public art + heritage + galleries + shopping for handmade + aboriginal experiences + arts and cultural events in vibrant Central NSW.
The Culture Maps Central NSW website is a partnership with Central NSW Joint Organisation of Councils and Regional Development Australia Central West with active support from the tourism teams at each local council.
Kew-Y-Ahn Aboriginal Gallery is a partnership with NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.
