This page will be updated throughout the campaign to demonstrate how each major party is investing in tourism.
The Andrews Government tourism agenda is led by the Minister for Tourism and Major Events, the Hon John Eren MP, and Parliamentary Secretary for Tourism and Major Events and Regional Victoria, Danielle Green.
Key tourism initiatives from the first term of the Andrews Government:
The Opposition’s Minister for Tourism and Major Events is Heidi Victoria MP.
The Opposition has announced a $2 million City of Culture program to showcase cultural highlights from across regional and suburban Victoria to boost local tourism.
If elected in November, the Opposition has committed to a feasibility study for the Great Southern Ocean Bike Trail, which will link Adelaide and Melbourne and features a series of tourism-focused loops.
A key recommendation of the Opposition’s Victorian Population Policy Taskforce is improving transport connections to regional Victoria to ‘boost tourism growth, as regional tourism attractions become closer in time for Melbourne and international visitors.’
