These environmental values are recognised as being of international significance, and they also support The Cradle Coast Region’s essentially nature-based tourism product which attracts domestic and international visitors.
The region’s highly fertile soils support profitable cropping, dairy and beef sectors, and there is a rapidly growing aquaculture sector to complement the wild fishery. Primary production and supporting industries are the livelihood of large sections of the regional community.

A diverse region
As a region, our goal is to have proactive, vibrant communities who protect and advocate environmental, social and economic progress for a sustainable and bright future for our region. Through education, programs, projects and community engagement, we equip the region’s population and key stakeholders with knowledge and tools in order to achieve our vision. We also carefully balance the farming of our region and celebrate the success of its production.
