Australia’s backyard gets a $61 million makeover

A $61.7 million environment and heritage package will be announced in next week’s Federal Budget.

Environment Minister Sussan Ley told Ben Fordham it will help showcase the beauty of Australia.

“This is about visitors coming and seeing what we have to offer, not just the reef, the rocks, the Harbour Bridge – important though they are – but regional Australia.”
