A revamped tourism website for Cummins is a top priority for the newly formed Cummins and District Tourism Committee.

Committee convenor Anika Swaffer said the town was seeing an increase in visitors each year and the committee wanted to ensure the momentum continued.

“The committee feels it is vitally important to ensure Cummins responds to this increase and continues to give visitors even more reasons to explore the town and district,” Ms Swaffer said.

“We are a community with a strong farming base and we know of a few local farmers who are keen to offer agri-tourism experiences too.

“We are really excited about the tourism potential of our district.”

Committee member and Lower Eyre Peninsula councillor Wendy Holman said the committee was excited to work on new projects and to offer a “friendly, fun and welcoming visitor experience in Cummins”.

“The regional development board of Whyalla and Port Lincoln recently highlighted that rural towns within the region need to be more pro-active on the local tourism front in order to not be left behind,” Mrs Holman said.

The committee was officially formed at the Cummins and District Enterprise Committee’s December 13 meeting in response to this need.
