Nature-based Tourism Co-investment Fund
About the fund
The $5 million Nature-based Tourism Co-investment Fund is a pilot grant program designed to assist eligible businesses and organisations to partner with the state government to deliver ecologically sensitive tourism experiences and products in South Australia.
The fund is part of the government’s Parks 2025 Strategy and is intended to provide the stimulus businesses may need to activate or build on existing ecologically sensitive tourism offerings in the state’s national parks, reserves, botanic gardens, and Crown land.
If you are a tourism operator, you can apply for a grant of between $20,000 and $1 million. To be eligible for a grant you will need contribute at least half of the total financial costs of the project and also contribute to a conservation dividend.
The Nature-based Tourism Co-investment Fund will be open until June 2022 (or until the fund is exhausted).
