Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) has prepared a comprehensive summary, 2024-25 State budget tourism overview

While QTIC welcomes investment in economic development and key infrastructure projects, the budget is unfortunately light on support measures for small business and tourism.   

It is pleasing however, to see the confirmation of funding levels for Tourism and Events Queensland that were put in place in the forwards last year, increased funding for Growing Future Tourism Projects, additional funding for Bush Tourism, and release of funding for First Nations tourism.

QTIC is providing an overview of the state budget from a tourism perspective. They invite you to download and read the major industry-related initiatives that have been allocated within the 2024-25 budget.
