What is DestinationQ

DestinationQ is a partnership between the Queensland Government and the tourism industry.

The partnership approach involves ongoing engagement between industry and government to debate and agree on key priorities to drive growth and jobs in Queensland's tourism industry. The most visible element of the partnership is the annual DestinationQ forum where industry and Ministers come together to discuss key issues facing the industry and agree on priorities to support the industry achieve its long term vision for success.

Who's who in our tourism industry?

Each tourism destination in Queensland is represented by a regional tourism organisation (RTO), as well as local tourism organisations (LTOs), local governments and other associations.

At a state level, the Department of Tourism, Major Events, Small Business and the Commonwealth Games, and Tourism and Events Queensland (statutory authority) represent the industry within government, and the Queensland Tourism Industry Council is a not for profit membership organisation representing members' interests.
