A renovation of the shipwreck coast area has been announced by the state government who are attempting to boost tourism in the area.
The renovations include new lookouts for the Twelve Apostles and The Blowhole, Victorian Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio recently announced.
A new pedestrian bridge is also planned over Campbell’s Creek with connecting trails and a Wi-Fi and digital interpretation platformed based on the Twelve Apostles.
According to the minister, while the area was popular amongst tourists, most stayed only 45 minutes on average. The area made on average 18 cents per visitor. The investment would boost the area’s economy by boosting tourism.
The revamp will also assist further down the coast, in areas damaged by bushfires.
