Applications are open for round one of the new Tourism Infrastructure Fund

About the fund 
The Tourism Infrastructure Fund provides up to $25 million per year for the development of visitor-related public infrastructure such as carparks, freedom camping facilities and sewerage and water works.

Priorities for round one 
The fund supports communities facing pressure from tourism growth and in need of central government assistance – areas with high visitor numbers but small ratepayer bases, for example. The Priorities Statement for round one, which was also released today and will guide assessment decisions, indicates an initial focus on projects that meet current visitor demand and communities in most immediate need of assistance.

Applications will be accepted until 4 September 2017 from local councils and community groups with council support.
