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.
