Updated: Tourism Research Australia’s Local Government Area profiles

Updated Local Government Area (LGA) profiles by Tourism Research Australia are now available for 215 LGAs. The profiles include visitor numbers, spend and length of stay, as well as information on purpose of visit, accommodation type and number of tourism businesses in the area. They assist industry and government decision making and identify and support investment opportunities, particularly in regional Australia.

Profiles are only prepared for LGA’s with adequate International Visitor Survey and National Visitor Survey samples to produce robust results. The data is also averaged over four years, which minimises the impact of variability in estimates from year to year and provides for more robust volume estimates.

Profiles are provided for international travel, domestic overnight travel, and domestic day travel.
