Do you know how much visitors spend on accommodation in your state or territory?
Tourist accommodation information is collected from hotels, motels and serviced apartments, with 15 rooms or more. These provide mainly short-term non-residential accommodation, generally for guests staying for periods of less than two months. This is the current scope of the Survey of Tourist Accommodation however, from March quarter 2005 to June quarter 2010, the scope of the survey was expanded to include smaller establishments.
Takings from accommodation include gross revenue from the provision of accommodation, including GST. Takings from meals are excluded.
Room occupancy is calculated by the number of rooms actually occupied expressed as a percentage of total capacity available during the survey period. All data presented here are trend estimates.
