The highest attendance rate at cultural activities in all three Tasmanian Regions was for people attending cinemas.

Attendance rates for Tasmanians living in the Greater Hobart-Southern Region were the highest of the three Regions for all venues and events included in the survey, apart from dance performances and musicals and operas.

For the Mersey-Lyell Region, although the rate of people attending at least one of the cultural venues or events surveyed was similar to the Tasmanian average (83.2% compared to 84.3% for Tasmania), in 9 of the 12 categories surveyed the attendance rate was the lowest of the three Tasmanian Regions
