Proudly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments through the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).

The Tourism Recovery Officer role is jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments as a component of the 2019 Queensland Bushfires Community Recovery Package under Category C of the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements.

As many of the region’s local tourism operators navigate recovery from natural disasters and COVID-19 travel restrictions, the new role will support businesses and industry through key projects and events with a focus on driving tourism business development, growth and resilience.

12 initiatives have been approved to support the recovery of tourism operators and businesses in the Southern Downs Council area to recover from the devastating effects of the Queensland bushfires from September to December 2019.
