More tourism jobs to flow from SA grants

A $2 million boost to South Australia’s tourism sector will create more than 100 jobs and help regional communities overcome the twin impacts of the coronavirus pandemic and last summer’s bushfires, Premier Steven Marshall says.

Wineries, boutique accommodation venues, a distillery and a micro-brewery are among the latest venues to receive money from the state’s Tourism Development Fund.

“Today’s cash injection will create more than 100 jobs and support regional communities from the bushfire-affected Adelaide Hills and Kangaroo Island, to the Flinders Ranges and the Riverland,” Mr Marshall said on Sunday.

“This will not only help them attract more visitors to their businesses, but to their region as well.”

The SA government has allocated $20 million to the development fund with $3.7 million handed out so far.

Applications for grants will continue until the end of March 2022, or until all the grant money is exhausted.
