The Queensland Tourism Industry Council (QTIC) and First Nations Tourism Working Group are holding regional updates on the development of the First Nations Tourism Peak Body.  

Consultations, including surveys, were held around the state earlier this year to gain feedback on the development and structure of this body. We have listened to your ideas and proposals and have now developed a draft structure which we are seeking your feedback on.  

Please come along if you: 

  • Identify as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander 

  • Live in Queensland 

  • Own or work for an entity that operates a tourism business in Queensland 

  • Are responsible for business development and/or planning for a First Nation organisation that represents First Nations Traditional Owner Group 

  • Are a member of a PBC or involved with planning or assessing tourism as a means for community economic and or cultural development 

This plan was formed by your voice and continues to have First Nations people at its heart. The program is supported by QTIC, the QTIC Indigenous Champions Network and the First Nations Tourism Working Group. 

Please note unless otherwise stated, all sessions will be face to face. Registration to all sessions is free.
