BMAG president Dave Robertson said tourism was one of the largest industries in the Greater Blue Mountains region, attracting more than 3 million visitors a year and injection more than $500 million into the economy.

“Of the three million that visit, we know that 40 per cent of them are friends and relatives of residents of the area,” he said.

“That means that the people living in the area are frequently taking their friends and relatives to many of the attractions available in the region. They also direct them to accommodation houses.

“Most tourism operators would be aware that many of these tourism ambassadors are repeat visitors to their business and therefore should be rewarded for their actions.”

The BMAG rewards program is available to all residents of the Blue Mountains, Oberon and Lithgow council areas (cardholders must be aged at least 17).
