Enabling Tourism Fund

The Enabling Tourism Fund supports regional and rural Victorian tourism projects to reach investment ready status. It will do this by funding activities such as feasibility studies, master planning and business case development. This fund is part of the Victorian Government’s plan to accelerate tourism investment and recovery.


Objectives of Program

The investment will support activities that increase the pipeline of investment ready tourism projects. As a result of this fund, more projects will be able to leverage private investment, employ more people, and attract more visitors by offering world-class experiences.

The fund will focus on four growth sectors identified in the Visitor Economy Recovery and Reform Plan – nature, epicurean, arts and culture, and First Peoples’ led experiences.

The fund will deliver grants up to $500,000 per project, with a minimum funding amount of $20,000 per project.
