    Established in 2017, ‘South West Sydney Tourism Taskforce NSW Inc.’  is a non-profit organisation that promotes the visitor market and tourism opportunities in the region, engaging with government representatives and businesses to revitalise local tourism assets and arrange events with influential speakers to foster collaboration in the industry.

    Over the last seven years, SWST has showcased destinations and held information events for members and stakeholders as well as topical events (such as travel agent packages or hotel investments).

    Founding board member and president, Fazila Farhad called all stakeholders to support and enter the inaugural awards to further activate the visitor economy ahead of the arrival of the Western Sydney International Airport.
