Project Description

TRC produced a Tourism Masterplan for Magnetic Island which would ensure it stood out amongst other island destinations in Queensland and further afield in order to sustain growth, a thriving community, and a competitive visitor economy.

This Masterplan was a blueprint for:

  • investment in infrastructure across the island that contributes to a thriving island community
  • ensuring growth of the visitor economy is appropriately managed to conserve the significant landscape, environmental and cultural values of Magnetic Island
  • increasing the economic return from tourism through increasing the value of tourism expenditure
  • attracting private investment to Magnetic Island

TRC held consultations with the residents, Traditional Owners, industry, community organisations, government stakeholders and investors to determine the long-term vision for the island and the priorities required to achieve it.
