Tourism Strategy

The Queensland Government has a long-term commitment to grow the state’s tourism industry.

Advancing Tourism 2016–20 is our plan to grow tourism and jobs. It seeks to capitalise on the unprecedented growth in tourism to increase market share and boost tourism jobs by targeting four priority areas:

  1. Grow quality products — build on Queensland’s reputation for the variety, quality and safety of its destinations and its unique and niche world-class products and experiences.
  2. Invest in infrastructure and access — ensure that modern, high quality infrastructure is in place and visitors can enjoy seamless travel to and around Queensland.
  3. Build a skilled workforce and business capabilities — match tourism growth potential with a skilled workforce providing high quality service and building skills to meet future demand.
  4. Seize the opportunity in Asia — deliver an accelerated and targeted approach to maximise the opportunities in high-yield, rapid growth Asian markets.
