Last year Queensland celebrated the Year of Outback Tourism and the dust is yet to settle on that magical experience.
Due to the overwhelming success of the program of events, we have extended Year of the Outback into 2020.
We continue to celebrate the wonders and wonderful people of Western Queensland, and we are confident you will thoroughly enjoy a unique Outback experience here.
You are in for a special experience, whether you are stepping out onto the course in Biloela, Charleville, Quilpie, Blackall, Hughenden or Longreach.
This is an opportunity to take a swing at being a pro circuit player while connecting with the Outback spirit. The tournament includes a ‘Million Dollar Hole-in-One Challenge’ as part of the finale event in Longreach.
Tourism is important to the Outback, with the industry worth more than $350 million and supporting 3700 jobs across the region. The Queensland Government is delighted to be working with organisations like Golf Australia Limited to see these numbers continue to grow.
Through our Year of Outback Tourism Events Program, a total of $3 million in grants to support new and established events is being allocated to local governments, event promoters, community organisations and businesses across Outback Queensland.
There is a lot happening throughout 2020 to entice Queenslanders and interstate and overseas visitors, to head out west.
Thank you for heeding the call and sharing in the adventure!
We hope you enjoy the Outback Queensland Masters. Share your snaps, tell your friends and make plans to head back to the Outback.
