Premier Steven Marshall visits Eyre Peninsula

Considering the busy schedule that Premier Steven Marshall has and that it has been compounded by the recent bush fires he managed to include a visit to Eyre Peninsula. It was very pleasing that in his role as Minister for Aboriginal Affairs and Minister for Tourism he visited three of the sites in the Far West that are major partners in the Far West Aboriginal Tourism Strategy actions. He was particularly impressed with the initiative shown by the Ceduna Aboriginal Corporation in progressing the establishment of the Ceduna Aboriginal Art & Cultural Centre, and the establishment of the Koonibba Store that will now connect with the history of Koonibba as a tourism site. Information was provided on the progress of other tourism sites including Maralinga Village Tours, Head of Bight, Yalata Caravan Park and the Scotdesco accommodation facility. The Premier was particularly interested in Koonibba’s role in the space program with the first launch planned for March. The Premier was accompanied by the local member Peter Treloar MP.
