Tourism TasmaniaIt has been a record year for tourism in Tasmania and tomorrow’s State Budget will build on this momentum to continue creating jobs in the sector.

 

 

One of our key priorities is to make sure our regions share in the industry’s billion dollar boom, and events are a great way of drawing people to our towns.

 

 

The Budget will include $610,000 over three years to support and attract new events in regional Tasmania. The Regional Events Start-Up Program is aimed at kick-starting new and unique events, while ensuring they can be financially self-sustaining into the future.

Tourism is booming in Tasmania and this Government is committed to making sure that our regions are well placed to share in the prosperity of a vibrant visitor economy.This will further help us achieve our commitment to attract 1.5 million visitors to our state every year by 2020, which the industry tells us will create an additional 8,000 jobs.
