Congratulations to the 18 projects across the State that have secured funding through the Tourism Innovation Grant Program.
Our Government is a strong supporter of our world-class tourism industry that supports jobs and our economy across the State, and this funding will further add to the outstanding experiences we have to offer.
The successful applicants include:
- Splendid Gin, with funding to go towards opening a tourism hub in Swansea. The House of Splendid distillery will offer tours and experiences, advanced distilling and production, functions, hospitality and retail;
- Dune by Kittawa Lodge on King Island will use support for an entirely off-grid product, which will include a fine dining restaurant and bar, day spa, and a premium events space; and
- Maydena Bike Park, who will diversify their offerings, ensuring that the park’s first global mountain bike event next year (Enduro World Series) is ready to cater for a major increase in visitation.
Importantly, the funding is spread across our regions, which is one of the program’s key objectives and will support new visitor products and experiences to increase regional and repeat visitation.
