Indigenous Tourism Fund: Discussion Paper
On 24 April 2019, the Government announced $40 million over four years for an Indigenous Tourism Fund (ITF) to support Indigenous tourism businesses start-up or expand
As part of the announcement, the Government committed to extensive consultation with Indigenous stakeholders before finalising details of the ITF. This will ensure the final design of the ITF program is appropriate, useful and best meets the needs of the sector so that it can strengthen and grow.
This discussion paper is a central element of the consultation process and designing the ITF. It sets out considerations and options in designing the ITF to support new and emerging Indigenous tourism businesses.
