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

Western Australia will receive $5.063 million in funding over four years, which is managed by Tourism WA. TDDI funding has been allocated through two streams, with all funding now exhausted.

Regional Transformational Projects
Five projects, one from each tourism region, that have funding from other sources and will help the State achieve its 2020 goal, were preselected for the program.

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

Each project is an existing concept that has been scoped and costed by a project partner, which may be State Government, local government or an industry association.

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 are linked to a state, regional or destination tourism plan and have attracted funding from other sources.

The following projects were selected using this process:
