Registrations open for new tourism infrastructure projects

Published:

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has today announced registrations are open for $25 million worth of funding for shovel-ready tourism projects.

“We know that to stimulate our economy, we must get shovels in the ground immediately,” she said.

“Registrations are now open for projects right across the state that will deliver new tourism attractions and create jobs for Queenslanders.

“If you’ve got plans drawn up and you’re looking for funding, you’d be crazy not to apply.”

Minister for State Development, Tourism and Innovation Kate Jones said successful recipients would be required to start within three months of approval.

“We know tourism businesses are doing it tough. But we want to make sure that our industry is in the best possible position to reboot once restrictions are lifted,” she said.

“By delivering new attractions, we’re not only giving a great boost to our tourism industry – we’re helping to create construction jobs for workers during a tough time.”

An extra $25 million earmarked for tourism icons such as the theme parks and animal parks will be provided to recipients early in coming weeks. For more information or to review the guidelines, visit ditid.qld.gov.au/our-work/growing-tourism-infrastructure-fund
