Eligibility Criteria

Events Tasmania is committed to increasing the number of people coming to Tasmania, getting them talking about Tasmania and ensuring that they travel around the state while they are here.  As part of meeting these objectives, Events Tasmania is investing in events that bring competitors and supporters to Tasmania.

Grants are worked out against set criteria up to a maximum of $10,000. Grants are available to eligible competitions, championships and sporting events that:

  • attract more than 100 people from outside Tasmania,
  • stay three nights or more in paid commercial accommodation (hotel, motel, B&B, cabin), and
  • promote pre- and post-championship holidays and regional touring as part of their event promotion


Nights spent onboard the Spirit of Tasmania do not count towards your nights in Tasmania.

Applications must be submitted at least two months prior to the start date of the event. 

Applicants can be based anywhere in Australia, and must be able to enter into a funding agreement with the Tasmanian Government.
