New South Wales Regional Tourism Satellite Account
This report examines the contribution of tourism to New South Wales and its tourism regions.
Tourism is a valuable contributor to New South Wales’ economy. Tourism Research Australia’s (TRA) State Tourism Satellite Accounts (TSA) 2013–14, reports that during the period, the tourism industry directly contributed more than $13.9 billion to New South Wales' economy (Gross State Product) and directly employed approximately 159,000 people.
To complement the State TSA, TRA – in partnership with Destination New South Wales – commissioned Deloitte Access Economics to develop regional TSA measures to examine the role and contribution of the tourism industry at a regional level. The regional TSA measures both the direct and indirect impacts of tourism on the economy and includes metrics such as Gross Regional Product (GRP), Gross Value Added (GVA) and employment. The regional TSA also provides information about tourism consumption, output, taxation, and the composition of the tourism industry and its interaction with other industries.
GRP and employment, along with the share of the economy for 2013–14, are available by clicking on each region on the map below. For more comprehensive information, click on each region in the table. The full report is available by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
