FACET is a Western Australian based network and information resource for people with an interest in cultural, nature based and eco-tourism.

The Association was conceived in 1991, when it became apparent that many exciting opportunities and developments were taking place in the field of cultural and eco-tourism, in isolation of each other.

A core group of people then came together to establish FACET to advise on and promote sustainable tourism to government and industry involved in this new growth area.

Our membership is diverse and is drawn from the tourism sector, academe, government agencies, cultural, ecological and scientific institutions, the general public; i.e. anyone with an interest in the field.

Current Conference

Fresh Thinking - Culinary Tourism

According to Tourism WA's Taste 2020 Strategy, culinary tourism is Western Australia's international point of difference.

The theme of FACET's 2018 Conference was  'Fresh Thinking - Culinary Tourism' and was held in Busselton from 22-23 November.  The program explored the opportunities to grow culinary tourism in Western Australia, showcasing what is trending in food & wine in Australia and Internationally.  The 2-day event comprised a full day of presentations, a half day practical workshop, VIP Sunset Tour of the Busselton Jetty & Underwater Observatory and two networking dinners.


Testimonial:
"Food Tourism is one of the fastest growing sectors in global tourism marketing.  In WA we have a wider range of produce grown than in any other State in the world.  This is an ideal tourism opportunity

The FACET conference brought together a group of inspiring presenters that showed growers, producers and tourism operators how they could work together to develop a unique marketing opportunity in WA. 

This was one of the best, practical conferences I have attended in some time and the excellent interaction of group members allowed for the discussion to present new ideas.  At Chestnut Brae we ahve already developed a new network of partners and ides as a result of the conference and workshop".
