Tourism great for business

Last week I recommended to Council that we become an honorary member of the newly formed South West Sydney Tourism Taskforce.

This is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to increase tourism and visitation across the region.

Tourism is great for local businesses. It can create local jobs and help to drive and grow our local economy.

Existing businesses can grow, new businesses can develop, and innovation can increase.

Fairfield City is a fabulous area that attracts many visitors and tourists. We have a great deal to offer, including our history, our family attractions, our multiculturalism and our food outlets.

We have some of the largest festivals and most diverse food experiences in the state and these draw thousands of visitors to our City each year. We also have some great family attractions, such as Aquatopia, the Fairfield Adventure Park and Western Sydney Parklands.

Visitors come to our city from across the Sydney region as well as from further afield. We have visitors from across NSW and Australia, and from overseas.

We already have our #DestinationFairfield campaign, which aims to promote our local attractions so residents and visitors are reminded of what we have to offer.

We will continue this campaign into the future and I encourage residents to look out for information on what is available in our area.

By joining the new Tourism Taskforce we will become part of a coordinated approach to tourism in our region. I look forward to working on this approach to further boost the economic benefits for our City.

Mother's Day                             

I would like to take this opportunity to wish all mothers a very happy Mother's Day for Sunday 14 May.

Mother's Day is an opportunity to honour the mother in your life who has had a positive impact on you, whoever they may be.

Whether you take mum breakfast in bed, get together for a family lunch or dinner, or present her with a bunch of chrysanthemums, be sure to spoil you your mum this Sunday.

I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends and be sure to get involved in some of the great Mother's Day events, including Council's events over the next couple of days in Fairfield City Centre, Cabramatta, Canley Vale and Canley Heights.

Moon FestivalEvents such as the annual Cabramatta Moon Festival are a great reason to visit Fairfield City.
