Starting an agritourism business

Tasmania offers many opportunities for people looking to combine our unique tourism and agriculture experiences and start an agritourism business.

Starting and operating an agritourism business can be complex and can involve specific timeframes, costs and challenges.

To make it easier for agritourism businesses to get established in Tasmania, the Tasmanian Government has created a toolkit that provides important information for operators.

The toolkit guides anyone wanting to develop an agritourism idea through the approvals and permits they need to get started and then to maintain the business.

Agritourism Guide for Regulators

A separate guide for regulators is also available, providing an overview of agritourism, detail on why the sector is a significant economic contributor to Tasmania and specific ways in which regulators can assist agritourism businesses through the approvals process.
