Together in Tourism

Townsville Enterprise is proud to launch a new community campaign, focusing on the quiet achievers who help contribute $1.2 billion to the economy and provide 8,000 local jobs. The 'Together in Tourism' campaign shines a light on the supply chain within the industry and demonstrates how interlinked the sector is, and highlights the businesses who unexpectedly rely on tourism to keep them afloat.

We're sharing ALL the faces behind the tourism industry, from those you see at the front offering tours and services, to those behind the scenes that help keep the whole operation going. It's the produce suppliers who need restaurants to be busy. It's the mechanical engineers onboard ferries to Magnetic Island. It's the housekeepers keeping our hotel rooms in perfect condition for guests. These people keep the tourism industry moving forward, but also depend on the tourism industry to provide for their families.
