Tourism industry resources

We support our tourism industry with a range of helpful resources to position Queensland as a world-leading tourism destination.

Accessible tourism

Making your tourism business accessible is not only the right thing to do, it makes good business sense. Create a welcoming environment that everyone can access and enjoy to the fullest.

Sustainability is essential to the future success of every tourism business. The Sustainable tourism toolkit has clear and simple advice to help tourism businesses become more sustainable.

Next generation tourism planning

The next generation tourism planning guideline provides a framework and guidelines that enable the efficient delivery of tourism development.

Developed in consultation with government, stakeholders and industry, the guideline is applicable to a broad range of tourism projects and relevant to all regions and local government areas across Queensland. It provides guidance on:

  • planning for tourism and tourism development
  • incorporating planning into Queensland’s statutory planning framework.

Best practice guide for working with First Nations tourism in Queensland

To strengthen the relationship between Indigenous Australia and Queensland's tourism industry, the Queensland Tourism Industry Council has produced a best practice guide for working with First Nations tourism in Queensland (PDF, 2.7MB).

This guide provides a practical framework for recognising people and places, safeguarding intellectual property rights and cultural protocols, and respecting Indigenous heritage. It contains essential resources and protocols for engaging with First Nations peoples in the tourism sector.
