Australian Tourism Development Program
Prior to the introduction of the T-QUAL Grants program, AusIndustry delivered grants through the Australian Tourism Development Program (ATDP) on behalf of the Australian Government (see Related Documents).
The competitive merit-based ATDP offered grants over two years for tourism development projects ranging from $50,000 to $500,000.
Between 2004 and 2009, the Australian Government provided almost $30 million in support for 177 tourism projects across Australia through the Australian Tourism Development Program.
Evaluation of the Australian Tourism Development Program
In 2010, the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism conducted an evaluation of the ATDP.
A summary (see Related documents) has been prepared for key stakeholders which outlines the key findings and recommendations from the evaluation.
