Year of Accessible Tourism 2023-2024


The Year of Accessible Tourism in Queensland is an opportunity to recognise the importance of accessible tourism experiences for all, and to ignite change and create opportunities for Queensland tourism businesses.

Targeted initiatives are being delivered as part of the Year of Accessible Tourism, with $12 million in new funding invested to help the Queensland tourism industry better cater to visitors of all abilities and provide greater destination experiences for all holidaymakers in Queensland.

This will enable everyone to participate in a tourism experience with choice and confidence and lay the foundations for making Brisbane 2032 the world’s most accessible and inclusive sporting event for athletes and spectators.


In 2022, Get Skilled Access and TravAbility delivered the Accessible Tourism in Queensland project on behalf of the department, assessing tourist infrastructure accessibility and business capability in six tourism destinations including Brisbane, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Fraser Coast, Townsville/Outback Queensland and Cairns.

As part of the Year of Accessible Tourism, the project was extended to complete a state-wide project with six more destinations assessed.

These Accessible Holiday Destination Guides have been developed for tourism businesses use and promotion.

Senior Leaders' Immersive Experience workshops

Senior Leaders’ Immersive Experience workshops are providing participants with the knowledge and insight required to inform decisions regarding accessibility and inclusiveness in their organisations.

The workshops are an immersive experience led by Get Skilled Access team members with a disability, who work with participants to simulate workplace challenges for staff using wheelchairs, mobility aids and low-vision glasses.
