Enabling Tourism Fund

05 February 2024

The Enabling Tourism Fund 2024 supports regional and rural Victorian tourism projects to reach investment-ready status by funding planning activities such as feasibility studies and design for future investment.

About the program

This fund will help to deliver a strong pipeline of demand-driving tourism infrastructure projects across Victoria.

Successful applicants will be supported via grants to deliver planning activities such as feasibility studies, master planning and design.

The fund will focus on the 5 product priorities identified in Experience Victoria 2033:

  • First Peoples-led experiences
  • wellness
  • arts and culture
  • food and drink
  • nature.

The fund will deliver two grant streams:

  • Stream 1 – Testing the Concept: between $20,000 and $500,000 (excl. GST) for a project to test the concept of a new infrastructure project, such as a feasibility study, master plan or business case.
  • Stream 2 – Preparing for Investment: between $20,000 and $500,000 (excl. GST) to prepare a combination of materials to ensure that a project is ready for infrastructure investment. These could include a detailed design package, funding strategy, or stakeholder and community engagement plans.

Applicants can only submit one application for either Stream 1 or Stream 2.

Applications for the Enabling Tourism Fund 2024 will close at 5pm on 28 March 2024.
