Agritourism for Wollondilly

The NSW Government is making it easier for farmers to diversify and use their land for agritourism to complement the existing use, adding extra income and value to their existing business and to encourage a new generation to the land.

Activities such as farm stays, camping, roadside stalls, cellar doors, restaurant and cafes and events are made easier under the new simplified planning rules and via a fast-track approval (complying development) or no planning approval (exempt development), with some limitations and conditions to minimise impacts on neighbours, rural roads and community.

The Agritourism Stakeholder Pack assists landowners to know about the new ways they can use their farm to make additional income under the simplified planning pathways.

More information is available through the Department of Planning and Environment.

The new guide is designed to both help businesses that are exploring the agritourism opportunity and those that are already established and ready to grow.

Businesses can find tips on how to develop bookable agritourism experiences that are practical, meet and exceed the expectations of today’s visitors and connect them to farming practices in an authentic way.
