The Tourism Demand Driver Infrastructure (TDDI) Program was an Australian Government initiative with more than $43 million over four years being distributed to State Tourism Organisations (STOs).

Western Australia received $5.063 million which was managed by Tourism WA. TDDI funding was allocated through two streams, with all funding now exhausted.

Regional Transformational Projects
Five projects, one from each tourism region, that had funding from other sources were preselected for the program.

The projects were identified from the key priorities within regional blue prints, regional tourism plans or State Government strategies.

The following projects were selected using this process:

  • Dampier Terrace/Frederick Street Lookout, Broome 
  • Mersey Point Jetty redevelopment, Rockingham
  • Cruise ship tender landing platform, Busselton
  • Cruise ship passenger embarking and disembarking infrastructure, Esperance
  • Kalbarri Skywalk, Kalbarri National Park

Competitive Grants Program
Further projects were selected through a competitive grants process with up to $500,000 awarded on a matched funding basis to the successful applicants.

The grants were available to government agencies, not-for-profit tourism industry associations and local governments for projects that were linked to State, regional or destination tourism plans.
