Tourism Events Grants


Tourism Events Grant Funding Program

The Tourism Events Grant Funding Program supports event organisers to develop, promote and execute events which make a positive and ongoing contribution to the Shire.

Tourism Events are an important and growing part of our local economy and add to the vibrancy of our region. Council's Tourism Events Grant Funding Program provides grant funding for events that attract (or have the potential to attract) a significant number of visitors to our region.

Priority is given to events that increase visitation to the Shire, generate positive media coverage and stimulate the local economy.
