The regional manager for the Western NSW branch of Business NSW has welcomed the return of travel to regional NSW from June 1
Vicki Seccombe said the opening of the regional communities will help kick-start the economic recovery from drought, bushfire and coronavirus.
"Western NSW has a powerhouse offering when it comes to regional experiences," she said.
"A strong food and wine scene, the country and outback, star gazing, gold and opal mining, cultural and Indigenous tours and national parks.
"Almost 8,000 jobs were lost across Western NSW since the start of the pandemic and this re-opening will help boost business confidence to start employing people again.
"Whilst there are still a number of restrictions in place for many of our hospitality businesses, we expect these to ease and we urge the NSW Government to ease restrictions in line with welcoming visitors to regional NSW.
