Our services

Our department delivers services in these areas:


Queensland has the second largest tourism industry in Australia and we’re working hard to get us to the number one spot.

That’s why we’re investing in quality tourism products, attractions and experiences and making the most of our unique, competitive tourism advantages.

Tourism industry development is delivered across two priority focus areas:

  • Tourism Infrastructure and Investment
  • Tourism Recovery, Olympic Engagement and Legacy.

With a shared objective the two focus areas promote the recovery and return to long-term growth of the tourism industry by facilitating a strategic whole-of-government approach to attracting and amplifying investment in Queensland’s tourism infrastructure, assets and products, and leveraging major events to generate jobs and other benefits.


We are transforming Queensland by investing in our innovation sector to grow our future.

That’s why we’re backing the big thinkers who stand ready to help us.

We’re building on our strengths and helping our regions to compete globally, supporting startups to commercialise their ideas and investing in science and technology.

Advancing Queensland through Innovation drives economic growth and job creation through innovation in our traditional and emerging strengths, harnesses Queensland’s research strengths and entrepreneurship to encourage new industries and using new technology, new skills capital and ideas to support business and industry creation, global connections and growth.

Join us as we build our innovation economy and deliver economic growth and jobs across our state.

Sport and Recreation

We are supporting and encouraging Queensland’s participation and success in sport and active recreation.

The Activate! Queensland 2019–29 Strategy seeks to enrich the Queensland way of life through physical activity, through providing more opportunities for Queenslanders to be physically active.
