$100-MILLION ON THE TABLE FOR TOURISM PROJECTS

Councils, community groups and tourism operators are being encouraged to put on their thinking caps, and come up with new ideas to attract tourists.

There is $100-million in grant money on offer from the state government.

“We’re looking for big tourism attraction projects, there’s no better time to try and attract extra tourist to our region, to spend money, stay nights in our country communities than now, given the terrible drought conditions we’re experiencing,” Northern Tablelands MP and Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Adam Marshall.

It’s part of the second round of the Regional Growth, Environment and Tourism fund.

Applications close on September 21.
