Department of State Growth

Cultural and tourism industry development sector

Tasmania has a unique position in the imagination of Australia and the world. The state is increasingly being recognised as an attractive destination for tourists and for our cultural environment and industries.

The government is committed to supporting the cultural, creative and hospitality industries by working with industry on the development and facilitation of niche strategies that provide funding initiatives and programs to help grow this sector.

Principal sector objectives:

  1. Industry growth - leading to improved economic performance and increased jobs.
  2. Brand - significant contributor to Tasmanian identity both locally, nationally and internationally.
  3. Tourism - contribute to both supply and demand aspects of the Tourism Industry.
  4. Attraction - contribute positively to the quality of life of Tasmanians through providing a range of activities that encourage social participation.

The business units working within this sector have specific communities of practice (niche sectors) and relationships, which support policy development, industry development and funding attraction from private and other government sources.
