The Victorian Government is working tirelessly to remove excessive red tape and tourism has benefited. VTIC made strong representations to the Government that small public events such as fairs, festivals and markets faced daunting red tape approvals. Because of this, some organisers were declining to stage the gatherings, with local communities and tourism suffering.

The Government responded by abolishing the need for public entertainment occupancy permits for community events with less than 5000 attendees and occupying a space in excess of 500m².
The Government has just announced other measures that will benefit tourism. As a result:
  • Segway tours around well-known Melbourne tourist destinations will be trialled
  • minor alterations to caravans in caravan parks, such as the building of annexes, will become less complicated
  • small live music venues will enjoy streamlined approval processes
  • under-age live music events in currently licensed premises will be easier.
