Qld funding support


More than 20 events across Queensland will receive $581,500 in funding to support local tourism and the state’s COVID-19 Economic Recovery Plan.

Qld Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the latest round of the Queensland Destinatio­n Events Program would support 23 events running from Jan to May.

He said five of the destinatio­n events for the first half of next year, including Moreton Bay Multisport Festival, Rockynats, Surf City Cup, Cooly Classic Ocean Swim and the Junior State Cup North, were receiving funding for the first time, adding they are important for attracting visitors to Queensland’s tourist destinatio­ns, and supporting job creation.
