​​Tourism WA supports a diverse range of sporting, arts, cultural and culinary events throughout the State.

Events form an important part of our strategy to increase the value of tourism to $12 billion by 2020.

Events give people a time-critical reason to visit WA and encourage l​ocals to travel around the State. They also add vibrancy, in particular to regional areas, attract valuable national and international media coverage, and provide a significant boost to the local economy. 

Tourism WA has developed a Resource for Events in Western Australia to assist organisers with safe and efficient event planning and conduct. 

Tourism WA supports a range of events across Western Australia through Major Events Funding, the Regional Events Program and the Regional Events Scheme.
