THE Tasmanian Government has allocated $10 million to Tourism Tasmania as part of its bid to stand out from the crowd as an appealing travel destination.
The funding was allocated in the state’s 2022/23 budget, charging the tourism body with continuing initiatives to secure its recovery from the pandemic and maximise future visitor economy opportunities.
Tasmania has also set aside $5.6 billion for general infrastructure investment, with $205 million of the pot going towards improving tourism and recreation facilities.
The Budget has also committed more funding to complete its upgrading of tourism amenities in the Freycinet National Park.
These enhancements will include the construction of a new visitor gateway transit hub and car park, a second Wineglass Bay lookout and return loop track, and a new Foreshore Walk linking Coles Bay to the national park.
