  • Speech to the Western Sydney Visitor Strategy Launch

    I am very pleased to be here today to speak at the launch of the Western Sydney Visitor Strategy.

    The development of this strategy is an impressive example of the private sector coming together with key public sector partners to generate a strategy for economic and social growth.

    As the Western Sydney Business Connection has identified, the visitor economy in Western Sydney offers significant growth potential.

  • Transcript – Doorstop Interview: The Northern Road Project


    Before we talk about this important step in the construction of vital infrastructure in Western Sydney, I want to say some more about the events in London, the implications for security in Australia and the circumstances of Australians affected.

    The attack in London reminds us yet again, that we face a determined enemy in Islamist terrorism. It is a global threat. We fight it the Middle East in the field, in Syria and Iraq. And we fight it at home in Sydney and Melbourne, around the nation and around the world.

    We’ve seen these terrorist attacks in one city after another in very recent weeks - in London, in Manchester, in Kabul, in Jakarta and Baghdad.

    Westen Sydney is aiming to draw up to 14.3 million visitors every year under an ambitious plan to attract tourists.

  • Speech to Tourism Forum - Maximising Western Sydney Airport Opportunities

    Over the Christmas break my wife, my son and I spent a day with the Blue Mountains Adventure Company. We started at their facilities in Katoomba, and they took us canyoning at sites in the Wollemi National Park.

    We had a wonderful day – and it was a powerful reminder to me of the unique, high quality tourism offerings in Western Sydney and the Blue Mountains.
