The Queensland Tourism Industry Council and First Nations Tourism Working Group are holding regional consultations for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tourism operators, members of Prescribed Body Corporates and First Nations people who have an interest in shaping the future of Indigenous tourism in Queensland.
These consultations are being held to continue the work already underway in the development of the First Nations Tourism Plan and the Plan for the Year of Indigenous Tourism.
We would like to hear your voice on what the opportunities and challenges are for First Nations Tourism – especially in light of COVID-19 impacts - and the development of the First Nations Tourism Council for Queensland. Your input is essential to ensure the body is representative of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tourism operators across Queensland.
Please come along if you -
- 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 Nations 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
List of consultations are below.
Please note: These consultations may be cancelled at short notice due to COVID. Should this happen we will be in touch with further information.
