STATE TOURISM REFERENCE PANEL DISCUSSION PAPER NOW PUBLIC


In March this year the Queensland Government established a Tourism Industry Reference Panel (Chair Liz Savage, Andrew McEvoy and Brett Godfrey) to help identify the actions government and industry will take through a new Action Plan for Tourism Recovery after the reversals of COVID-19.

Across Queensland, 11.3 million fewer visitors travelled to or within the State in 2020, representing a loss of $12.3 billion in overnight visitor expenditure.

After meeting frequently over the past months, the Panel has now released a discussion paper seeking input from Queenslanders into the future of tourism in Queensland.

The paper is designed to start a wideranging conversation about the future of tourism in Queensland and how to
achieve success in the wake of COVID19. It describes Queensland’s tourism past, highlights the changes the Panel is seeing and asks industry to share their ideas for the future.


Feedback will help to identify the actions government and industry will take through a new Action Plan for Tourism Recovery.

The discussion paper is also now available on the DTIS website with a timeline for responses and individuals, businesses and organisations are invited to have their say through GetInvolved.
