As part of the Year of Outback Tourism, the Queensland Government has launched the $3 million Year of Outback Tourism Events Program, to help grow tourism and enhance the profile of Outback Queensland.
In 2019 and 2020, grants will be available for new events or to extend existing events, which contribute to enhancing the profile of Outback Queensland and attract new or increase the number of visitors.
Funding from $1000 to $100,000 (exclusive of GST) is available per event. Program funding may provide up to 50% of overall event costs. Events must be delivered on or before 31 December 2020.
