The South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC) is continuously monitoring and responding to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and we acknowledge the monumental impact this is having on the tourism industry, not only in our state but worldwide. The challenges we are facing have never before been seen, with decisions to restrict borders, businesses and ensure social distancing measures, are unprecedented and necessary to protect the South Australian community.
In response these challenges and the continuously changing environment, the South Australian Government announced a significant financial support package to help local tourism operators and partners to survive these difficult times.
The $5.7 million package encompasses five different programs each targeting a different need in the industry. It included two immediate financial support packages (applications for which, are now closed) and the Resilience and Rebound Program. For more details on the support package, see our Tourism Response Portal here. Details and resources of the Resilience and Rebound Program are available below.
