Overview

In 2011-12, the estimate of cultural expenditure by the Tasmanian Government rose 14% to $130.0m which was 4% of the total cultural expenditure by state and territory governments. Recurrent expenses accounted for 89% of Tasmanian Government cultural expenditure. The estimate of per person expenditure by the Tasmanian Government was $253.80.

In 2011-12, the estimate of expenditure of Tasmanian Government funds for Heritage activities increased 17% to $117.9m. Driving this movement was an increase in recurrent and capital expenditure of funding on Libraries from a total of $21.0m in both 2010-11 and 2009-10 to $41.9m in 2011-12. This increase was partially offset by a fall in expenditure on Other museums and cultural heritage, down 33% to $11.0m. Funds for Environmental heritage made up almost half (49%) of all Tasmanian Government Heritage expenditure.
