1 TOURISM IN WESTLAND MARCH 2012

2 Tourism in Westland The Westland District Council co-ordinated three tourism industry related meetings during February These were held in Haast, Fox Glacier and Hokitika. The purpose of the meetings was to discuss how best to manage tourism in Westland and how the tourism sector can assist in achieving the Council s adopted Vision. Westland will, by 2030, be a world class tourist destination and have industries and businesses leading through innovation and service This will be achieved by: Involving the community and stakeholders Having inspirational leadership Having expanded development opportunities Having top-class infrastructure for all communities Living the 100% Pure NZ brand A range of questions were asked of each group including: What are the opportunities for Westland and how do we achieve these? What are the challenges for Westland and how to we resolve these? What is Council s role in tourism? Do you want Council's tourism funding to continue to go to Tourism West Coast? Participants were also asked to prioritize the marketing activities for Tourism West Coast. When reading through the following report, please note the following numbers attended and participated in the meetings from each area: Haast (5), Fox Glacier (16), Hokitika (25). The following information has been collated from the meetings: 2

3 What are the opportunities for Westland? As can be seen from the above graph, Haast attendees saw promotion and marketing as the strongest opportunity for Haast. Comments in regards to promotion included: Promote the history and tell our unique stories; package and promote the destination "West Coast"; promote our unique isolation and wilderness and adapt the product of the Haast Hollyford Road - Access to Milford and World Heritage Park. In relation to comments regarding marketing the following were made: Look at who has the money to visit and define the target market; target the domestic market and develop product for the Asian Markets. Developing and enhancing recreational nature activities including developing a day walk and a bush walk (Haast township to beach), developing a cycle track, and enhancing our fishing and hunting was also discussed as an opportunity. Opportunities for keeping our product knowledge current and up to date at i-sites as well as enhancing knowledge of local business/staff were also discussed. 3

4 Marketing as well as development of tourism opportunities for Franz and Fox Glacier both received the highest rating at 14% for each activity. Comments in relation to marketing included researching new markets and learning how to cater to them as well as marketing the recognised glacier icons. In regards to the development of tourism opportunities, attendees said that Fox and Franz Glacier need to expand on the already successful model of the "glaciers etc." as well as move beyond the glaciers to encouraging sustainable tourism, developing an eco-lodge, and growth within Westland National Park, e.g. gondolas. Customer service, business management and development and product knowledge was also discussed and was the next highest rated opportunity coming in at 13%. Free broadband/ Wi-Fi/ mobile in Westland were seen as an opportunity for Westland as well as the support of superb business management and customer service. Franz and Fox Glacier also commented that there is an opportunity to attract better quality staff through an immigration programme. 4

5 In Hokitika, attendees saw the strongest opportunity for Westland as promotion. The encouragement of all promotional groups to work together came through as a strong theme. The need for a paid professional to promote the district was also raised and came up several times throughout this workshop. Hokitika would like to see the promotion of their history and unique stories, rain and good weather, unique isolation and wilderness and West Coast hospitality. Hokitika attendees believe that to do this Westland needs to be packaged and promoted as a destination. The development and enhancement of recreational nature activities was also raised as an important opportunity for Westland. Ideas included the development of a treetop walk, development of guided walks and activities that include knowledge of our natural history and geology by local knowledgeable experts, the development of walkways and enhancement of fishing and hunting activities. Branding, point of difference and development of the townships attracted the third highest ratings. Branding and point of difference comments included; Hokitika - 5

6 unique top class shopping / nice feel to CBD / accessible beach; Maori culture / pounamu; interesting people who reside in Westland - gold, fishing, whitebait, pounamu; Hokitika is distinctive because of its mix of nature, culture and history an retails; Brand the Highway; What is the point of difference? Development of townships comments included: Develop beachfront access; enhance township presentation/uniqueness; Staff village/expand local infrastructure, childcare, schooling, housing management and first entry, develop sports facilities and use the community hall on a corporate level, e.g. gym membership. Overall Result When combining all results from Haast, Fox and Franz Glacier and Hokitika, promotion attracted the most votes and therefore came out as the highest priority as an opportunity for Westland. Marketing followed behind promotion and the development and enhancement of both recreational nature activities as well as townships came in as the third highest opportunity. 6

7 What are the challenges for Westland and how do we resolve these? The major challenge that Haast attendees at the meeting identified was: The policing of freedom camping and parking at Jacksons and Neils Beach. Attendees at the meeting would also like to see Welcome to Haast signage and saw funding and community agreement as issues that stood in the way. Other challenges included cleaning up rubbish on the roadsides and the provision of more rubbish bins and toilets. Maintaining access to beaches was also seen as a challenge along with managing traffic driving all over the wilderness space. 7

8 Franz Glacier and Fox Glacier saw funding as the major challenge for Westland. Comments included attracting investment; the need for longer term security of tourism funding for marketing investment; lack of funding for promotion; pool of rates is not enough to support funding infrastructure. Franz Glacier and Fox Glacier saw perceptions as the next major challenge for Westland. Comments on this issue included perceptions of wet weather, sandflies, isolation / remoteness; and also tourists perception of value after being elsewhere. Freedom camping and parking and managing visitor expectations came out as the third highest challenge. Other challenges included there not being enough activity product for trade sales e.g. guided kayaking, walks (eco/historic), guided drives, hunting, fishing; effective marketing in the right markets, both nationally, domestically and internationally to increase visitor numbers; collaboration by finding enough people who can work together for the common cause and collective co-operation between businesses as well as total acceptance of the "Vision" by every person on the Coast as an ambassador for Westland District. Getting people to stay longer also was an identified challenge. Seasonal peaks and flows related to inexperienced/transient and lack of staff. Cost of business was brought up in regards to how expensive the cost of doing business is on the West Coast. 8

9 Hokitika prioritized its challenges closer together than that of Haast and Fox Glacier and Franz Joseph. Getting people to stay longer was regarded as the major issue. Comments included: Hokitika is seen as a lunch stop instead of a "hub"; The West Coast is a destination in its own right and it deserves the opportunity through activity and accommodation providers to be a longer stay. Increasing flights and expanding destinations were also mentioned here. Local infrastructure and facilities followed closely behind destination as a major challenge. This issue included the need for better toilets and more off them; further hotel accommodation to cater for bus tour companies in Hokitika; the erection of a glass wall to utilise the beach; the completion of beautification and footpath programmes and the need for better and cheaper broadband and cellphone. Promotions was also seen as a challenge and included comments such as getting promotions groups to work together; being smarter as a town and promoting the points of difference; promote value for money; positive promotion of state highway route; promoting Hokitika's value added attractions and how to promote Hokitika - need 1 message - too many products? The challenge of collaboration was brought up and having everyone prepared to work together to deliver the same message; working together to achieve; finding enough people who can work together for the common cause and collective cooperation between businesses were the main comments for this issue. 9

10 Perceptions, lack of funding, more informative signage, no control over assets we are promoting our businesses with when there are national priorities against local needs, marketing to the right markets, point of difference and having more knowledge of the tourism industry as to why more visitors don't choose to visit here were also tagged as challenges for the area. Overall Results Overall, the results for the West Coast in regards to challenges show that funding is the major challenge that is seen by the attendees of the meetings. Changing potential visitor s perceptions and getting people to stay longer came out as the next major challenges. Collaboration, promotion and enhancing and developing local infrastructure and facilities were also seen as the major challenges for the West Coast. 10
