ATV gets active in VictoriaNovember 26th, 2018 | | backpacker
Adventure Tourism Victoria (ATV) has been recently created due to the gap in representation for youth focused organisations at Government level. In recent years Victoria has not had an industry led group for the youth sector. In a state as large and prominent within Australia, this lack of representation has resulted in other states paving the way for the industry.
Inspired by Backpacker Operator Association NSW (BOA) and Adventure Queensland (AQ) through their advocacy work, voices and information points for the industry. Due to the successful events that bring the entire tourism community together (such as BOA Ball and Adventure Tourism Awards) ATV aims to bring the same amount of light to Victoria as a must see destination for all travellers.
ATV is a young and enthusiastic group, with diverse experience in various sectors of the industry keen to make their voices heard and unite as one. ATV welcomes all new members. Please join our group on Facebook.
EDIT: great initiative from the Victorians. Let us all support their efforts and assist in any way we can.
