The tourism industry makes an important contribution to the state and to Tasmanians. It represents and celebrates the best of Tasmania and our way of life as well as supporting communities and jobs around the state.
We understand that with this comes a deep responsibility to honour and maintain what’s special about this place and its people.
As a destination marketing organisation that connects with visitors through storytelling, we acknowledge our role and the opportunity we have to connect visitors with Tasmania’s environment, people and culture and our deep and complex history.
We want all visitors to feel welcome and are committed to working closely with both industry and our diverse communities to understand, package and communicate accessible and inclusive visitor experiences.
Tourism Tasmania’s board, executive and team are committed to ongoing and meaningful engagement with the Tasmanian Aboriginal community to ensure our role as a marketing organisation supports their aspirations for involvement in the sector.
As an organisation, we are committed to growing our knowledge and understanding of Tasmanian Aboriginal history and culture through respectful engagement and action within our program. This commitment is ongoing, and we will work closely with Tasmanian Aboriginal people to ensure we continue to respectfully sustain this commitment through our work.
