Tassie events boost


THE Federal Government has pledged more than $360k in investment to help spur Tasmania’s tourism sector, announcing this week the funding of four new festivals that will attract more visitors.

The quartet of new events will include the Beaker Street Festival, the Bruny Island Bird Festival, the Great Eastern Wine Week and the Junction Arts Festival.

“We are supporting exciting new Tasmanian festivals because the best thing our govt can do for tourism businesses is to get tourists back travelling and spending money,” the govt said.
