Tourism North East (TNE) is the peak regional tourism organisation for Victoria’s High Country, charged with driving the strategic growth of the region’s visitor economy .

TNE is an independent non-profit organisation, formed through a partnership between local councils, alpine resort management boards, Visit Victoria and the tourism industry. It is governed by a Board of Directors that has the overall responsibility for the successful leadership and development of tourism across the region.  An independent Chair leads the 16-strong Board, which consists of both skills-based directors and local government and alpine resort management CEOs.
