Have your say: Stimulating Tourism in Northern Australia

QTIC is preparing a response to the Joint Standing Committee on Northern Australian on an inquiry into opportunities and methods for, and impediments and challenges to stimulating the tourism industry in Northern Australia. Further details can be found here: http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Joint/Northern_Australia/TourismIndustry.

The Terms of Reference includes (but is not limited to) the following:

1.       Domestic and international tourism comprising: recreational, environmental, cultural, educational, and industrial tourism;

2.       The role of peak bodies, local communities, and all levels of government in developing and promoting tourism opportunities nationally and internationally, including regulations and workforce issues that may inhibit tourism development; and

3.       Communication and transport infrastructure (particularly air, sea, road and rail transport and port infrastructure) which may facilitate and grow tourism.

To assist QTIC in presenting a strong, representative and united voice for Queensland tourism, we strongly encourage all tourism operators, organisations and stakeholders to send through your thoughts to policy@qtic.com.au by Monday 30 January 2017, and/or share any responses to the inquiry with the QTIC team.
