Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney and Member for Penrith said the NSW Government is committed to building a world-class calendar of events as part of the recently announced Visitor Economy Strategy, which is set to rejuvenate NSW’s visitor tourism and events industry in the wake of COVID-19.

“Events such as the Australian Rowing Championships play a pivotal role in NSW’s Visitor Economy Strategy, which sees participants and spectators flock to Sydney, injecting an economic boost into our city, furthermore, enhancing our city’s reputation as Australia’s premier sporting destination,” Mr Ayres said.

The event comprises of the Australian Open Rowing Championships, Australian Open Schools Rowing Championships and the King’s and Queen’s Cups Interstate Regatta, which brings competitors from across Australia, as well as internationally.
