Eco Destination Business Program 2024  

In the wake of the exciting news about Townsville Region achieving globally recognised tourism sustainability certification, we are thrilled to extend this opportunity to businesses to become eco-certified.

Through round 2 of the Tourism Business Capability grant, opening on the 15 May 2024 (up to $2,000), you can embark on your eco certification journey with minimal financial burden and ample support. Successful applicants will not only gain access to invaluable resources to help their tourism business grow but will also join a local supportive cohort of like-minded businesses facilitated by the Sustainability Department of Townsville City Council and the Smart Precinct NQ.

We invite you to seize this opportunity, apply for the grant, and express your interest in joining this one-time, nearly cost-free chance to become certified today. This offer includes enrolment in our 4-week Eco Destination Business Program, where you’ll gain essential skills for managing a successful eco-tourism venture, along with additional support.

Under the guidance of industry experts in eco-destination management and local mentors, you’ll acquire the knowledge and tools necessary to fortify your business for a sustainable and prosperous future.

Join us as we pave the way for a new era of eco-destination-supported businesses in Townsville, dedicated to making a positive impact on our environment and economy.

Please note that Smart Precinct NQ does not manage this grant process. If you have any questions about the Business Capability grant, please get in touch with the Department of Tourism and Sports from the Queensland Government by Phone at 13 QGOV (13 74 68).
