Accessible Tourism Enablers Grant

Supporting disability service providers develop accessible tools for use by tourism businesses.

The $1 million Accessible Tourism Enablers Grant supports not-for-profit disability peak organisations and accessible or disability-specific service organisations to develop and/or enhance products and services for use by tourism and event businesses.

It is part of the Queensland Government’s $12 million in new funding to support delivery of a package of initiatives to enhance and develop accessible tourism projects and to raise awareness about accessible tourism experiences in Queensland.

The Year of Accessible Tourism supports key actions in the Towards Tourism 2032 – Transforming Queensland’s visitor economy future, a tourism industry strategy.

Grant funding examples include:

  • template resources that will support tourism and events businesses improve their accessibility and inclusivity
  • products that can be used by tourism and events businesses to create more accessible websites, guides or images/videos
  • adaptive and assistive equipment and technology that can maximise the visitor experience
  • development of disability inclusion plan templates aligned with Queensland’s Disability Plan to improve accessibility to visitors and ensure an inclusive workplace.

The key objectives of the Grant are to support projects that will:

  • increase the number of tourism and events businesses that are delivering exceptional and accessible customer experiences
  • have a positive impact for the community through improved accessibility to visitors
  • support and provide opportunities to the tourism and events industry to make improvements to accessibility for visitors and workers with disability
  • Preference will be for projects that provide resources, products and services freely or at low cost for Queensland tourism and events businesses and have a benefit.
