Tourism

Tourism entails spending time away from home in pursuit of relaxation, recreation and pleasure while making use of the commercial provision of services. The socio-cultural impact of tourism ranges from the interaction between people of different cultural backgrounds, attitudes and behaviours to material goods.

The outback areas of Australia are vast Tourism Center. Due to the unique environment of the Outback Lakes SA range area, the range of products from this area is very diverse. It reflects the close association between landholders and the country they live in and a great understanding of what it can produce in good and varying times.

Tourism in this area is a developing market with some landholders already participating in its benefits.

We, as a Group, feel Outback South Australia has beautiful areas, especially around the in and out salt lakeside which people can discover. Examples of such areas are Lake Eyre, Torrens, Callabona, Blanche, and Gregory.

Four of our stations are involved in tourism activity, namely:
