Tourist Destination Strategy
The City of Rockingham Council adopted the Tourist Destination Strategy (2019-2024) at its ordinary meeting on Tuesday 28 May 2019.
The Tourist Destination Strategy sets out our strategic priorities and direction for marketing Rockingham to tourists. The key objective of the strategy is to effectively and measurably promote the Rockingham region as a premium coastal destination in Western Australia.
The new strategy identifies and prioritises five key strategic elements to actively pursuing tourism:
- Destination marketing (targeting eco and adventure tourism)
- Visitor servicing (face-to-face and digital)
- Coastal development and activation
- Events activation (entertainment destination)
- Mid-tier MICE attraction (meetings, incentives, conferences and events)
Rediscover Rockingham – the City’s destination brand
The above image has featured on freeway billboards on Kwinana Freeway (northbound) and Mitchell Freeway (southbound) to promote Rockingham to intrastate travellers transiting to and from Perth.
Our tourism marketing brand aims to encourage everyone – locals and visitors alike – to Rediscover Rockingham. The brand is a key action of the City’s Tourist Destination Strategy 2019 - 2024. It features newly developed elements including a logo designed specifically for destination marketing, separate to our corporate logo and branding.
Rockingham businesses are encouraged to adopt the Rediscover Rockingham brand within their own marketing and promotion. The easiest way to do this is by tagging photos and videos on social media with #RediscoverRockingham. There are also several opportunities within the year to get involved with larger campaigns.
