Unlocking Agritourism Opportunities

Revitalise Your Farm with Planning Updates

Benefits of Agritourism Planning Amendments

  1. Increased Land Utilisation: With new planning amendments, you can maximise land use flexibility. Embrace innovative agricultural practices and expand production capacity without unnecessary restrictions.

  2. Streamlined Permit Processes: Say goodbye to red tape and bureaucratic hurdles. These amendments streamline permit processes, facilitating new structures, expansions, and agricultural projects.

  3. Environmental Sustainability: Modern agriculture emphasises sustainability. Discover how these amendments promote eco-friendly farming practices, encouraging the adoption of methods that benefit your bottom line and protect the environment for future generations.

  4. Diversification Opportunities: Explore income diversification with new planning amendments. Unlock agritourism, on-farm accommodation, and value-added opportunities to maximise your farm's potential.

  5. Community Engagement: Engage with your local community and share your agricultural story. These changes may encourage community involvement and support for your farm, creating a more vital, resilient agricultural ecosystem.

Agritourism Planning Rules

New planning reforms were initiated in December 2022 and have since been extended to additional regions throughout the state.

  •  Help landowners add value to their agricultural operations and encourage the next generation to farm the land.

  • Help make farms more resilient to the economic impacts of natural disasters and other unexpected events.

  • Support sustainable tourism, giving people more reasons to visit regional and rural NSW.

The reforms have no impact on agritourism businesses that are already operating lawfully.

Agritourism Planning Changes

The NSW Government has introduced clear planning terms for Agritourism. These include:

Farm Gate Premises: Where visitors interact with farm produce, such as fruit picking, sales, tasting, workshops, and cafes.

Farm Experience Premises: Where visitors can experience life on a farm, including tours, horse riding, weddings, functions, and retreats.

Farm Stay Accomodation: Including camping, caravanning, and glamping.

These changes help farmers grasp the potential of using their land for extra income, making exploring new revenue opportunities easier.
