CHANGES TO TOURISM REGIONS

Tourism Regions (TR) are provided by Tourism Research Australia (TRA) which are part of the Australian Government Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism.

The TRs are updated annually by TRA in consultation with State and Territory (S/T) tourism organisations. The number of TRs, their names and their boundaries vary over time. The TRs are constructed from allocations of whole Statistical Areas Level 2 (SA2s).

This document contains the details of all the changes to Tourism Regions in 2012–2013.

Further information about TRs can be found in the 2011 publication of the Non-ABS Structures:
