Tourism Master Plan
Tourism is an important part of the Orroroo Carrieton district economy, providing employment, vibrancy, and a range of businesses that would struggle to survive without tourist trade.
Orroroo sits on major national travel routes, the district has well-known attractions such as the Giant Red Gum, and its main street is active and engaging. Smaller townships in the district (e.g. Carrieton and Pekina) have untapped attractions, and the district benefits from the drawcard of successful Station Stay experiences such as Almerta, Bendleby and Horseshoe Range.
The district is well placed to expand tourism to provide economic diversity, additional jobs, and increased amenity for locals. This Tourism Master Plan provides a road map to guide the entire community in further development of the Orroroo Carrieton tourism sector.
