WHO ARE WE?

Adventure Tourism Victoria (ATV) is a new generation, not-for-profit organisation whose purpose is to support the adventure tourism market in the state of Victoria. We actively work alongside like-minded organisations in this sector across Australia including BOA NSW & Adventure Queensland.

We seek to support our sector via the following methods:

SUPPORT

1. Support business in the sector through ongoing training and support. Our executive committee is comprised of a talented group of dedicated industry professionals with decades of support in accommodation management, tour operations, travel agent businesses, car rentals and a range of other organisations.

LOBBY

2. Lobby government at a local, state & national levels in support of the wider adventure tourism sector. Key points that we plan on lobbying include rising visa costs of working holiday visas, ongoing negative media coverage of the sector, farm worker exploitation, expansion of working holiday program to emerging countries & illegal lodgings and subletting undercutting legal hostels.

NETWORK

3. Provide industry professionals with an annual calendar of networking & social events that would include membership drink nights, industry training workshops and of course an annual gala ball!
