Tourism is an important driver of the Queensland economy, creating jobs, attracting investment and sustaining communities.

The Queensland Government’s long-term commitment to grow the state’s tourism industry and cement its position as a world-leading tourism destination is being achieved through targeted programs that seek to develop new tourism infrastructure, increase access, attract major events and grow tourism jobs.
