SARTI Supporting Accommodation During Tough Times

*** ATTENTION: Accommodation & Tourism Suppliers ***

NOTE – November 2020: Last newsletter this offer was aimed at Accommodation Suppliers – SARTI is now expanding that offer for All Tourism Operators along the Lavender Trails. This includes accommodation, camping facilities, transport services, food outlets or any services that may be of interest to walkers and and Cyclists.

We have adjusted the information and web form slightly to describe and accept other businesses – but if something seems a little different – just fill in the form and leave us a note, so we can try help you.

The South Australian Recreation Trails Inc. (SARTI) recognise Accommodation Providers and Other Businesses relying on Tourism along the trail have had a very tough time of it in the last few years, first most have seen a drought in their individual areas for the last three years, with the drought comes people tightening their budget and accommodation providers and other businesses linked to local tourism feel the consequences.

No-one could have prepared for what came next as the latest challenge both locally, nationally and World Wide has been the effect of the COVID-19.
Suddenly not being able to open at all, is a devastating proposition for any business, and the length of the shutdown made it even harder on all. It must be said that we in Australia and even more so in South Australia have been very lucky to have so far escaped the worst effects, with low numbers catching the virus and low death counts and for that we are thankful.

The South Australian Recreation Trails Inc. (SARTI) Board Board recognise the importance of our Accommodation & Tourism Suppliers along the Lavender Federation Trail, and the Lavender Cycling Trail and the Loops and Spurs off both these two trails.

As the lockdown is removed, with things slowly coming back to normal, we feel it important to support those who rely on our trails to remain viable and flourish so that our trails give people great experiences.

If you are one of the Accommodation Suppliers or Tourism related businesses along our trails, SARTI would like to offer to approved businesses a

“COVID Relief Package”

of a FREE Listing on the Lavender Federation Trail Website for one year.
