Message from the Premier

We are delivering our plan to secure Tasmania’s future.

While it is a time of uncertainty, it is also a time of opportunity. Our economy is strong, and our businesses and people are confident.

That is why the 2021-22 Tasmanian Budget builds on the strong foundations this Government has established over the past seven years.

We will invest a record $10.7 billion into our health system, and a record $8 billion in education, skills and training to enable Tasmanians to get the jobs that will support and drive our economy forward.

We’re helping more Tasmanians into homes with a record $615 million into social and affordable housing, and homelessness initiatives to help more Tasmanians in need.

It includes an ambitious $5.7 billion infrastructure program to support jobs, and build better, safer and more connected communities.

The Tasmanian Budget invests in community facilities and better roads, and we’re delivering savings on land tax, together with stamp duty relief to put more money back in the pockets of Tasmanians.

The 2021-22 Tasmanian Budget delivers on every commitment we made to the Tasmanian people during the election.
