Millions of Australians will benefit under the Morrison Government’s economic plan, which has committed an additional AU$20 million to the successful Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities Program.

According to a press release, the Morrison Government will provide more than 100 new projects across Australia’s coastal and regional communities to extend boat ramps, jetties, cleaning stations, disability-accessible toilet blocks, and campground facility upgrades.

Premier Minister Scott Morrison said the Coalition supports recreational fishers, campers, and boaters.

“Australians love getting out to explore the great outdoors, if it’s the weekend fishos, boaties or the family going camping, this program supports them by upgrading the community facilities they need,” the Prime Minister said.

One-in-five Australians are avid recreational fishers, and around 85% of Australians reside within 50 km of the coast.

The recreational fishing industry contributes over AU$1.8 billion to Australia’s economy annually.

The Recreational Fishing and Camping Facilities Program is managed by the state and territorial governments paid directly to local councils. Each jurisdiction is responsible for opening its programs, and local councils must apply through this process.
