Bushfire Recovery Round of the Regional Events Fund
The Bushfire Recovery Round of the Regional Events Fund is helping attract more visitors to the regions in the wake of the 2019-20 bushfires.
Events must take place within the following local government areas: Ararat, Alpine, Ballarat, East Gippsland, Glenelg, Golden Plains, Greater Bendigo, Indigo, Mansfield, Moyne, Northern Grampians, Pyrenees, Southern Grampians, Strathbogie, Towong, Wangaratta, Wellington and Wodonga and the Alpine Resorts of Mount Buller, Mount Hotham, Mount Stirling and Falls Creek.
The Bushfire Recovery Round is open until 27 March with grants of up to $20,000 available for eligible events.
The Regional Events Fund supports events that attract visitors from outside the region, create job opportunities and contribute to the local visitor economy. Applications are open to event organisers that host events in the Regional Tourism Board networks and open to private and public organisations, including not-for-profits.
