Memberships

Thank you for your commitment to Outback Queensland tourism. Your membership with OQTA plays an important part in developing and sustaining a vibrant and resilient industry in our region.


Our committed Outback Queensland Tourism Association (OQTA) members are the backbone of our success. From across the world's largest Regional Tourism Organisation region, our members shape an enviable network of experience and expertise – from our local councils to accommodation houses, to attractions, to major events and so much more.


OQTA membership opens doors to extend your own networks and put your business in the spotlight. We strive to deliver opportunities that provide invaluable connections, inspiration and motivation for agents, media, and industry alike.


Reach new audiences beyond from across the country and world by leveraging off OQTA's growing social media platforms, email database and website to promote your product or service.


Our membership is not a one size fits all approach. We've developed support tiers to ensure your membership aligns with your business situation and marketing efforts can be more targeted than ever before.


We continue to look for even more opportunities for campaigns, product and capacity building. And your membership puts you in the front seat to come on board as these arise beyond your tier package inclusions.


Please take a look through our 2022 membership guide. Should you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.


We look forward to working with you to grow Outback Queensland tourism and to continue to deliver memorable and authentic Outback holiday experiences.
