Council Tully Gorge Adventure Tourism Strategy

Council tully gorge adventure rzThe Tully Gorge Strategy was undertaken on behalf of the Council by MacroPlan Dimasi. It was funded through a Federal Government Building Better Regions Fund (BBRF) grant to the value of $40,000 with a further $20,000 provided by the Council and support-in-kind provided by Council, community and businesses who were consulted. The Study was completed in July this year and was considered by the Council at a Committee Meeting on 13 September 2018. It looks at the role that adventure tourism, and tourism generally, is able to play in economically activating the Tully Gorge area including the Council’s freehold land at Cardstone and the Town of Tully.


The Tully Gorge Adventure Tourism Strategy identifies a range of business leveraging opportunities as well as recommending actions to be taken by the Council to help push tourism forward for the Tully Gorge and our region.

This is your opportunity to discover opportunities in our region and also provide feedback to the Council regarding the implementation of the Strategy’s proposed action plan.

Comments will be received by the Council up until close of business on Friday 19 October 2018. The comments will be considered by the full Council before finalising decisions regarding the implementation of the recommended action plan.

Enquiries regarding the Study can be directed to Council’s Regional Tourism and Development Officer – Kate Hatten Phone: 07 4043 8837, Mon.-Fri. 8.30am – 4.30pm.
