Tourism

Our approach to tourism involves community-owned, grassroots and bottom-up methods for creating experiences, products and places that maximise community and local economic development benefits.

Plan C has developed a unique and powerful process to aid community groups achieve their goals for tourism and economic development.

Plan C uses their ‘bottom-up’ approach in community development to create tourism outcomes that are substantiated from individual operators and community members through to all levels of industry and government. It is this facility for relationship-building that has helped Plan C support communities develop tourism outcomes that are sustainable and successful.

We have supported Traditional Owners in the concept development, feasibility, planning and other approval process, funding and grants and business case development of Indigenous tourism enterprises since 2015. We have also supported the development of a state-wide program combining music, tourism and local economic development as co-authors of the Queensland Music Trails pre-feasibility study for QMF.

"What sets Plan C apart is their intuitive ability to transform a development concept into an evolution that community will readily endorse.

How? Because authentic relationships with all stakeholders is at the heart of their practice."
