Enabling Tourism Fund

We’re creating a strong pipeline of investment-ready tourism infrastructure projects across Victoria.

Applications are now open and will close on 5pm, 28 March 2024.

Program overview

The Enabling Tourism Fund 2024 is investing up to $8 million to support regional and rural Victorian tourism infrastructure projects to reach investment-ready status.

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.

It will be delivered via 2 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.
