The Regional Tourism Activity Monitor (R-TAM) is a voluntary business survey managed by Tourism Queensland. It aims to deliver timely, reliable data on the health of the regional tourism industry.
R-TAM collects timely information from tourism operators on a number of key indicators (occupancy levels, visitors to attractions, average daily rates etc). It is a voluntary programme which provides local competitive set information back to participants and other stakeholders. This information is vital as a marketing, decision making and yield management tool for the tourism industry, government, investors and developers.
Information is available for the following sectors:
To date R-TAM has been piloted in the three Regional Tourist Association areas of Tourism Tropical Queensland (localities of Cairns, Cairns Beaches and Port Douglas, Townsville Enterprise (Townsville, Magnetic Island, Charters Towers, Mission Beach and Bowen) and Southern Downs (Stanthorpe and Warwick).
