Tourism Recovery and Resilience Program - $1.15 million


The Tourism Recovery and Resilience Program will help eligible councils address local tourism disaster recovery needs following the 2022-23 Northern and Central Queensland Monsoon and Flooding event.

The program will provide immediate and longer-term support through the engagement of localised tourism recovery officers and a regional destination marketing campaign.

Tourism recovery officers (TRO) will be embedded in the north-west to undertake and support local recovery initiatives, with two TROs assisting Burke and Carpentaria councils and a First Nations tourism recovery officer working across impacted regions, all delivering:

•    Activities that support local tourism, economic recovery and community resilience
•    Initiatives that promote business continuity, preparedness and development

Meanwhile, a regional destination marketing campaign will help drive economic recovery by encouraging visitors to the north-west and promoting local tourism.

Eligible councils

•    Burke Shire Council
•    Carpentaria Shire Council
•    Cloncurry Shire Council
•    Doomadgee Aboriginal Shire Council
•    Mornington Shire Council
•    Mount Isa City Council
