WELCOME MESSAGE FROM

Manjimup Markets and More 9 December 2023
The State Government is a proud sponsor of the Manjimup Markets and More through Tourism Western Australia’s Regional Events Scheme (RES).
RES was established to support event holders across WA with the development of events to drive tourism to regional Western Australia. The scheme plays an important role in positioning the state’s five tourism regions as exciting destinations to visit and great places to live by showcasing and promoting the host region’s unique and diverse attractions.
A total of 65 regional events across WA have been funded through the 2023-24 RES, which also includes a $250,000 funding pool for the Regional Aboriginal Events Scheme, which exclusively allocates funding to events delivering Aboriginal activities and experiences.
The State Government, through Tourism WA, is proud to sponsor these regional events, which help bring vitality to local communities and drive visitor spend, injecting millions into regional economies.
Tourism is a key part of the State Government’s plan to diversify the economy, create jobs and develop business opportunities, especially in regional Western Australia.
Events play an important role in this plan, with the State Government sponsoring a range of sporting, cultural, arts and culinary events across Western Australia through Tourism WA, to attract visitors to our state and encourage them to stay longer, disperse further and spend more while they are here.
We hope everyone enjoys this event and takes the time to explore the South West region.
