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 $25 billion 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.

Attracting Tourism Fund (ATF)

The Attracting Tourism Fund (ATF) is a key initiative under the Queensland Government’s Growing Tourism, Growing Tourism Jobs policy.  The Queensland Government has allocated a total of $48.6 million to ATF to increase economic contribution, jobs and international overnight visitor expenditure (OVE) to the state by generating new tourism investment. This includes investment in landmark new attractions and major new international aviation linkages to position Queensland as the leading tourism destination in Australia.

The ATF is being managed and delivered jointly by the Department of Innovation, Tourism Industry Development and the Commonwealth Games and Tourism and Events Queensland.
