Tourism Research Australia - Key Metrics (LGA) 2013-2016

This dataset presents key performance metrics regarding tourism to specific Local Government Areas (LGA) around Australia. The LGAs covered in the data are a subset of the LGA boundaries classified in the 2016 Australian Statistical Geography Standard (ASGS).

The data presents metrics for visits, spending and length of stay to the specified LGAs by their location of origin and visit duration. The data values are representative of a yearly average based on the four years of: 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

Tourism Research Australia (TRA) first developed Local Government Area tourism profiles in 2007 to assist industry and Government decision making and to identify and support investment opportunities, particularly in regional Australia. The latest profiles provide an update for over 200 Local Government Areas. Data are drawn from TRA's International Visitor Survey (IVS) and National Visitor Survey (NVS), along with demographic and business data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS). Profiles were only prepared for Local Government Areas with adequate International Visitor Survey (IVS) and National Visitor Survey (NVS) sample to present robust results. Further, data are averaged over four years, which minimises the impact of variability in estimates from year to year, and provides for more robust volume estimates.
