Who is this for?

Organisers of auto, motorbike or walking tours within Tasmania.


Events Tasmania is committed to increasing the number of people coming to Tasmania, and ensuring that they travel around the state while they are here. As part of meeting these objectives, incentives are offered to organisers of motor vehicle, motorcycle, and cycle tours that come to tour around Tasmania.

Grants are available to eligible organisations who conduct a tour:

  • held in the March – November period (tours held in December, January and February are not eligible)
  • attracting more than 40 people from outside Tasmania
  • staying 5 nights or more in paid commercial accommodation (hotel, motel, B&B, cabin)
  • spending  at least 40% of its time outside Greater Hobart

Motor home, caravan, camping and walking tours may also be eligible, but only for the days that participants spend in paid accommodation, and with the same ratio of 40% paid accommodation in regional areas.

What are the eligibility criteria?

Applicants can be based anywhere in Australia, and must be able to enter into a funding agreement with the Tasmanian Government.
