Redlands Coast Tourism Subcommittee

The Redlands Coast Tourism Subcommittee is part of our approach supporting the local tourism sector. Establishment of the subcommittee is an action of the Redland City Tourism Strategy and Action Plan 2015–2020 [PDF, 7.0MB], which was developed with extensive input from tourism operators.

The subcommittee's purpose is to be a forum of Council and local tourism sector leaders to strategically inform, guide and participate in key tourism activities to grow the local tourism economy. 

A new tourism subcommittee was formed in August 2018. It's term is for two years or until a local tourism organisation is established (whichever comes first).
