Hindmarsh Shire Council in partnership with the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions will this year be supporting new and innovative tourism business ideas in Hindmarsh.

The Tourism Business Innovation Grants fund aims to maximise the benefits from increased tourism, through the provision of seed funding to new and innovative tourism focused business ideas in Hindmarsh Shire.

Businesses, individuals, and organisations are invited to apply for funding up to $10,000 (from a total funding pool of $60,000) to establish their new business idea or venture within Hindmarsh Shire.

Council is seeking applications which will increase visitation to the region, add value to existing tourism products and experiences within Hindmarsh Shire, and bring new target markets to our community.

Round One is open now and closes at 2:00pm on Thursday 30 June 2022. A second round may occur later in the year, subject to funds being available.

Hindmarsh Shire Council Mayor, Cr Melanie Albrecht said “Hindmarsh has many amazing tourism operators offering a myriad of adventures, experiences and accommodation. Tourism numbers are increasing in Hindmarsh with the growth of silo art and this funding provides a great opportunity for Hindmarsh tourism operators to showcase innovate tourism ideas and grow their share of the Victorian tourism economy.”

Funding for the Tourism Business Innovation Grants has been made available through the Victorian Government’s Tourism Infrastructure Program – Flagship projects: Mallee Silo Art Trail Program.
