In celebration of International Day of People with Disability we are honoured to announce that we have been selected to deliver an Accessible Tourism Service Provision Mentoring Pilot Program, supported by Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade)
With support from sub-contractor, Gläshaus Executive Director, Amanda Grocock, who will be bringing her expertise in strategic thinking, stakeholder engagement and communications to support us as we meet with and mentor 110 tourism operators around Australia.
A growing cohort of older travellers, multi-generational families, and people with disabilities means there must be a focus on accessible infrastructure, quality experiences, and a safe environment. This project allows us to analyse the state of the market, influence broad change, and demonstrate an approach which can then be widely adopted by tourism providers of all kinds.
People with disability make up a good proportion of the national tourism spend, but just how well are we serving this sector of the market? Let’s find out!
The regions highlighted for the project are;
- Hahndorf, SA
- Launceston & north, TAS
- Inverloch, VIC
- Lakes Entrance, VIC
- Canberra, ACT
- Penrith & Parramatta, NSW
- Gold Coast, QLD
- Whitsundays, QLD
- Darwin, NT
- Margaret River, WA
