Message from the Minister for Tourism Industry Development The Hon Kate Jones MP
Welcome to the Sunshine Coast for NetFest 2019.
Established in 2011 Netfest has grown to become one of the most popular events on the netball calendar.
Events like this allow players and fans to channel their passion for the sport in one of Queensland’s most iconic tourist destinations, bringing people and communities together and boosting the local economy.
The Queensland Government is proud to support this event through Tourism and Events Queensland because events attract visitors which create local jobs.
I wish all those competing a fun-filled weekend and the best of luck. I hope you have some time to enjoy some of the Sunshine Coast’s unique tourism experiences during your stay.
The Hon Kate Jones MP
Minister for Tourism Industry Development
