Young Tourism Leaders

The Queensland Government’s Young Tourism Leaders program provides influential and inspiring role models to encourage young people to consider a career in the tourism industry.

Young Tourism Leaders have found success in the tourism industry, are passionate about sharing their career story, insights and experiences and can offer advice and tips on the various pathways to kick-start a career in tourism. They make presentations in schools, engage with vocational and tertiary students and participate in careers events to promote the diverse, exciting career options the tourism industry can offer.
