Cultural Tourism Accelerator Program

The Cultural Tourism Accelerator Program is a $5 million targeted measure announced by the Australian Government as part of the Regional Arts Tourism package, which will enable arts organisations to promote and develop cultural events for tourists across regional Australia. The program will increase tourism visitation in regional, rural and remote communities across Australia by providing financial support for arts and cultural activity. 

The Cultural Tourism Accelerator Program aims to:

  • Support place-based programs to increase visitation
  • Build consumer confidence and activate engagement
  • Drive engagement across communities and between regions
  • Support sector-led responses.

In Tasmania the grant program is being administered by RANT Arts
