Tourism cash splash helps

Townsville Bulletin - - OPINION -

TOWNSVILLE tourism is the big win­ner from the Palaszczuk Gov­ern­ment’s $ 400 mil­lion four- year fund­ing guar­an­tee.

Our re­gion will ben­e­fit from fund­ing cer­tainty that will see sus­tained tourism mar­ket­ing to build our strong lo­cal tourism brand.

Townsville will also ben­e­fit from the $ 2 mil­lion Queens­land Des­ti­na­tion Events Pro­gram to grow our lo­cal events.

A grow­ing tourism in­dus­try means more jobs for Queens­lan­ders and more busi­ness for our lo­cal ac­com­mo­da­tion houses, cafes and restau­rants.

The Palaszczuk La­bor Gov­ern­ment has de­liv­ered on its com­mit­ment to re­store fund­ing for tourism and I look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to work with our tourism op­er­a­tors to sup­port the lo­cal in­dus­try grow from strength to strength.

SCOTT STEWART MP, Mem­ber for Townsville.
