The Palaszczuk Government has announced $200,000 in new funding to support Indigenous festivals, events and jobs for the Year of Indigenous Tourism.
Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships Craig Crawford said over five years, Indigenous tourism had increased by 6.4 per cent.
“More than 472,000 visitors have immersed themselves in the world’s oldest living cultures, right here in Queensland,” Mr Crawford said.
“Not only do Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander festivals and events attract visitors seeking unique cultural experiences, they deliver jobs and boost local economies.”
