From scenic bushwalks and iconic vistas, to farmstays and train museum - there is no doubt that Wollondilly has plenty to offer visitors.

Wollondilly Council hopes to bringing tourists the shire with its new Visit Wollondilly website.

The site provides helpful tourism information for both visitors and residents to support local tourism providers.

The website has been designed to modernise Wollondilly's online tourism footprint, simplify navigation for users and raise awareness of what is available in the shire.

Wollondilly mayor Robert Khan encouraged locals to take a look at the site.

"This new website is a great way to attract tourists to our region," he said.

"Most people go online to plan their holidays and visits to new destinations, so the website is the perfect way to reach out to those who are thinking about visiting Wollondilly.

"With the festive season and school holidays just around the corner, it's also the perfect time for locals to explore their own backyard and enjoy what is on offer."

Destination NSW's chief executive Steve Cox recently visited Wollondilly's leading tourism attraction, the NSW Rail Museum, to gain first-hand knowledge of the challenges that the area is facing following the bushfires and Covid-19.

Destination Sydney's Shannan Perry-Hall said it was great to show Mr Cox what the shire had to offer.

"Wollondilly is home to wonderful built and natural attractions, making it easier for people to experience the region and help drive the visitor economy and in turn support our important regional businesses," he said.

"It is a great time to ensure our visitors are making the most of the accommodation and experiences on offer".
