Queensland regional tourism satellite account
Tourism is a valuable contributor to the Queensland economy. The latest state Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) published by Tourism Research Australia (TRA) indicates that in 2013–14, the tourism industry directly contributed $10.7 billion to Queensland’s economy and directly employed approximately 130,900 people.
To complement the state TSA, TRA—in partnership with Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ)—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 provide 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 interactive map below.
If you require more information on each region for 2013–14, fact sheets are available through the TEQ website.
