East Arnhem Land Destination Management PLan

The East Arnhem Land Destination Management Plan (DMP) was released in November 2021. The plan was developed through extensive consultation with traditional owners, tourism operators, Northern Territory and Commonwealth Government departments and regional stakeholders.

The DMP outlines the current state of tourism in the region, the key opportunities and challenges facing tourism development, as well as a list of priorities focused on addressing key barriers limiting the growth of the tourism industry.

Tourism East Arnhem fully supports the implementation of the DMP and continues to work collaboratively with our partners to enhance the region's visitor economy. 

The DMP is available as a full document and summary document. These documents can be downloaded from the Tourism NT corporate website
