SPORTS AND RECREATION SERVICES TOURISM INDUSTRY

Tourism is not an industry or product in international statistical standards but it is commonly considered an industry by tourism researchers and economic analysts. The ABS (2013b) publication Australian National Accounts: Tourism Satellite Account, 201112 (cat. no. 5249.0) presents estimates of the direct contribution of the tourism industry to the Australian economy. Data is also available on tourism industry divisions and will be presented below as it includes sports and recreation services.

Industry gross value added measures the value of production exclusive of product taxes such as the Goods and Services Tax (GST). Sports and recreation services gross value added increased by 4% from $568.0m in 2010–11 to $593.0m in 2011–12.
