    Tourism operators on the West Coast say the Government's 400 million dollar budget announcement will do little to help them stay afloat

    Tourism operators on the West Coast say the Government's 400 million dollar budget announcement will do little to help them stay afloat


    The package offers funding to key tourism attractions, and a campaign to promote local travel.

    Four Scenic hotels have closed on the West Coast and there's been a dramatic rise in the number of job seeker applications, since covid-19 hit.
