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 offering incentives to organisers of motor vehicle, motorcycle, and cycle tours that come to tour around Tasmania.

Grants worked out on a scale of attendance and duration (see link to table below) from a minimum of $2,500 up to a maximum of $20,000 are available to eligible organisations who conduct a tour:

  • held in the March – November period 
  • attracting more than 40 people from outside Tasmania
  • staying five nights or more in paid commercial accommodation (hotel, motel, B&B, cabin)
  • spending 40% or more of the tour in regional areas (outside Greater Hobart).


Motorhome, caravan, camping and walking tours may also be eligible, but only for the days that participants spend in paid accommodation, and with the same ratio of 40% paid accommodation in regional areas.

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

Before applying for this grant, applicants must read and understand the guidelines to ensure they meet the eligibility criteria.  

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

Applications for this grant will be assessed against the criteria and applicants will be notified of the outcome of their application by email.

The Department of State Growth may contact you for additional information about your application and verify the information you’ve provided.
