Establishment and Functions

The Ministry for Tourism II was established by Order-in-Council of 21 July 1981 and assumed responsibility for the encouragement of tourism in Victoria from the Ministry for Economic Development (VA 2880).

The prime functions of the Ministry were:

promotion of tourism in Victoria
development of tourist facilities including the acquisition of property and provision of financial assistance to individuals, government and non-government agencies
operation of tourist bureaux and the provision of tourist information and travel services.

From July 1981 to December 1982 the Ministry was responsible to the Minister for Tourism II (VRG 89). However in December 1982 the Tourism portfolio was abolished and its responsibilities were undertaken by the Minister for Economic Development (VRG 71) until November 1983.

In May 1983 the Victorian Tourism Commission (VA 2871) assumed responsibility for tourism functions and the Ministry was abolished.

For a brief account of tourism administration between 1888 and 1987 see VRG 91 Tourism III.
