A regional tourism conference has begun with a minute's silence for the four people who died in a Dreamworld theme park accident.

Federal Labor tourism spokesman Anthony Albanese, who is attending the Australian Regional Tourism Network convention in the western Queensland town of Roma, said it was a terrible tragedy for the families involved.

"I've been on that ride with my son when he was little, about 10 years ago," he told 5AA radio on Wednesday.

"It's just good fun and you expect to go to those Gold Coast attractions, have a great time and remember it for the rest of your life.

"Unfortunately for the families affected by this tragedy I struggle to see how they will ever get over it."
