Regional Tourism Satellite Account 2018–19, Tourism Research Australia, September 2020

The Regional Tourism Satellite Accounts provide annual data for Australia’s tourism regions.
This data includes:

  • tourism gross value added (GVA) – direct, indirect, and total
  • tourism gross regional product (GRP) – direct, indirect, and total
  • tourism employment by full time or part-time
  • tourism consumption by visitor type (international or domestic)
  • population
  • number of tourism businesses

This data allows for comparison between:

  • individual regions
  • the tourism industry and other industries in the economy


Explore state and territory data.

Choose a state or territory from the tabs. Select a tourism region. You can view:

  • Regional summary – a time series of the data from 2007–08 to 2018–19
  • Consumption by tourism product
  • Gross value added – the economic value of goods and services produced
  • Employment by industry
  • State summary – direct, indirect, and total results

Industries in tourism are classified into 2 key categories:
