Tourism Development Plan
The Flinders Shire Council's Tourism Development Plan seeks to encapsulate all the experiences that a visitor is afforded within the Flinders Shire. This plan identifies areas of priority and development for tourism in the Flinders Shire - enabling the focus of resources and time to areas of development necessary to further expand and enhance the local tourism experience and market. It is envisaged that these priority areas will establish the base for future product and tourism specific development in coming years.
Flinders Discovery Centre Development Plan
The redevelopment opportunities presented in this document are based on an integrated model with four key areas with the visitor experience at the centre of the design concepts. The four key areas include the museum; visitor services; gallery and arts centre; and tourism community centre. All parts would come together in a transformed Flinders Discovery Centre that is designed around visitor experience and the goals of the Tourism Development Plan to extend visitors overnight stays.
Sport and Recreation Publications
Flinders Shire Council Sport & Recreation Plan
Many local community groups provided valuable input into the Sport & Recreation Plan, including sport and recreational clubs, community organisations, schools, young people, government agencies, facility operators, police and district health service staff. In addition many residents took the time to attend community forums or contact the consulting team directly. We are grateful to these groups and individuals. The project received funding under the Queensland Department of Local Government, Planning, Sport and Recreation's Local Sport and Recreation Program.

The Showgrounds Master Plan has been developed based on consultation with all user-groups, various members of the community and Council Officers. The Showgrounds Co-ordination Group continues to meet regularly.
