Member of the Legislative Council and Blue Mountains resident Shayne Mallard MP yesterday announced that Sculptures of the Scenic World Katoomba will benefit from NSW Government funding under the 2018 Flagship Event Fund, aimed at attracting more visitors to experience regional NSW.

Mr Mallard said the Fund, managed by the State’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, provides grants to support marketing activities that drive overnight visitation.

“I am delighted that the Sculptures of the Scenic World Katoomba will receive funding under the 2018 Flagship Event Fund.”

“We look forward to welcoming many more visitors to the Blue Mountains as a result of this exciting event, helping to further position our region as a must-see destination in NSW.”

Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said Sculptures of the Scenic World Katoomba was one of 35 events and festivals across regional NSW that will receive grants through the 2018 Flagship Event Fund.

“The 2018 Flagship Event Program features events that reflect the unique character, culture and attributes of their local community,” Mr Marshall said.

“We know that support for events helps to promote our State’s fantastic destinations while putting more heads on beds, diners in our restaurants and shoppers in our boutiques. I look forward to welcoming more visitors to our regions next year for this fantastic event program.”

The Flagship Event Fund offers annual grants of $20,000 or a triennial grant of $27,500 each year for three years and is part of the expanded Regional Flagship Events Program.
