The Department of Conservation established a new tourism team within their science and policy group. The Recreation, Tourism and Heritage team started on 1 July 2016. The Director is Gavin Walker.
A priority for this team is developing a DOC visitor strategy.
The formation of the team and the work on the strategy are both wins for TIA and are something we have been strongly advocating for over the past 18 months.
