Tourism Events Grant Funding Program

Tourism Events Grant Funding Program

Council offers a series of Tourism Events Grants to support event organisers in developing, promoting and executing events which contribute to growing tourism in the St George Region. 

Tourism Events are an important and growing part of our local economy and add to the vibrancy of our region. Council's Tourism Events Grants provide funding for events which attract - have the potential to attract - a significant number of visitors to the Balonne Shire. 

Priority will be given to events which increase visitation to the Balonne Shire, generate positive media coverage, and stimulate the local economy.
