Two pillars of the QLD economy connected for mutual benefit by the The Education Experience Program

As part of the Economic Recovery plan, the Queensland Government launched the The Education Experience Program to support the education sector, whilst also boosting the tourism industry.

For this $1M initiative the Queensland Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport aims to link school programs and tour operators. They have started the rollout of subsidised study trips to some of Queensland’s national treasures: the Great Barrier Reef and the Queensland Outback. It gives eligible schools with relevant curriculum activities the opportunity to apply for a subsidy towards educational trips to these amazing destinations in Queensland. As a consequence, it enables students to learn about Queensland’s iconic features during place-based educational experiences at these World Heritage sites.

The impact of the program

Tourism operators in these areas registered with the program will facilitate the place-based experiences for the students, leading to a boost in economic activity. Snorkeling on the reef or experiencing life on the land in the Outback will be an incredible outdoor experience to first-hand learn about these beautiful Queensland eco-systems. A long-term effect will be the increased knowledge and awareness of the Great Barrier Reef and the Queensland Outback by the younger generation. By understanding the importance of the rich history and tremendous value of these areas to our country, they are able to protect and preserve these true Australian treasures.

The program is made possible by the Department of Tourism, Innovation and Sport and Tourism and Events Queensland.
