Kings Canyon and Central Australia tourism industries receive a boost

The tourism industry at Kings Canyon and in Central Australia is set to receive a boost with just under $500,000 of Tourism Infrastructure Development Fund grants being awarded to tourism businesses in the region.

Chief Minister and Tourism Minister Adam Giles said a thriving tourism industry will help to develop our regions, boost local businesses, create more jobs and grow the Territory economy.

"The Country Liberals' Government is committed to expanding the range of tourism experiences on offer in the Territory, particularly in our regional areas, so we can create more jobs and drive economic development in these areas," Mr Giles said.
