Tour Guides Australia supports the Queensland Tourism Business Capability Subsidy Program.

The peak national industry association, Tour Guides Australia, proudly supports the Queensland Government Department of Tourism and Sport’s $2 million Tourism Business Capability Subsidy. The subsidy program is designed to boost the growth of Queensland’s tourism industry, offering up to $2,000 per eligible business to undertake targeted training and accreditation programs.

Tour Guides Australia President Greg Esnouf says: “It is a significant opportunity for Queensland tour operators to address workforce shortages by upskilling new and aspiring guides with our industry-led training packages, as well as providing accreditation for existing guides with our nationally-recognised accreditation and professional development program, ensuring that existing guides remain in the sector.”

Round 2 of the program launched on 15 May and runs through to October.
