Media Release Oct 1st 2020 Kotahi Tourism reopens it’s tours to the public
SOUTH COAST STORIES SHARED ONCE AGAIN
Unique award-winning, eco-tour operator, Kotahi Tourism, will re-open its South Coast tours from 3 October and is accepting bookings from New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory residents who are seeking meaningful travel experiences. Kotahi Tourism paused its tours earlier this year following the devastating bushfires and outbreak of the global pandemic and is one of many tourism businesses across the country to be significantly impacted.
Managing Director of Kotahi Tourism, Melinda Loe, is thrilled to be re-opening the tours, believing each tour and visit to the South Coast region will have a positive impact on the community, particularly the Conjola district where 83 houses were lost from the December and January bushfires.“It’s more important than ever that we support our local communities. Bringing visitors back to the area is a vital part of the region’s recovery, as well as helping our community get back on its feet after such a difficult time with the bushfires, floods and COVID-19.
“Since we can’t travel overseas, we can instead use this opportunity to explore our own backyards and experience what New South Wales has to offer. The scenery, wildlife and beaches in the South Coast are unparalleled and there’s so much to discover here, especially now as we see nature regenerating after the bushfires,” says Ms Loe.
To ensure the health, safety and peace of mind of all visitors, Kotahi Tourism is running only private tours (limited to one group per tour) with a maximum of eight people to allow for social distancing. The tour operator has also removed cancellation fees from bookings.
Kotahi Tourism’s range of walking tours celebrate the natural environment, share unsung stories about the land and offer countless opportunities for stunning photographs. Popular NSW South Coast day-trip tours include:
