Minister for Tourism, Major Events and the Commonwealth Games

Welcome

Message from the Minister for Tourism, Major Events and the Commonwealth Games - The Hon Kate Jones MP

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the Cloncurry Stockman’s Challenge and Campdraft, one of Queensland’s many great event experiences.

Events like the Cloncurry Stockman’s Challenge and Campdraft are vital to Queensland’s tourism prosperity, engaging visitors with the locals and the community, and creating memorable experiences.

The Palaszczuk Government is proud to support this event through Tourism and Events Queensland’s Destination Events Program, which helps drive visitors to the destination, increase expenditure, support jobs and foster community pride.

There is a story to tell in every Queensland event and I hope these stories help inspire you to experience more of what Outback Queensland has to offer.

Congratulations to the event organisers and all those involved in delivering the festival and I encourage you to take some time to explore the diverse visitor experiences throughout the outback.
