Tourism Research Australia (TRA) has released the Regional Tourism Satellite Accounts for 2020-21. The annual data highlights the importance of tourism to each of Australia’s 76 Tourism Regions and includes:

  • 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)
