* Please note, Tourism Research Australia has undergone an audit on their survey methodology and as a result made some changes to provide a more accurate level of data on tourism. This change in surveying group has resulted in significant increases of recorded visitation, once the complete 2015 data has been collected comparisons from year to year will be more reliable. For more information on the change in methodology and how it has affected the data set please click here.
Comparisons for International data have not been affected as the methodology for this data has not changed. It should be noted that international visitation does include Visa, and sponsored workers in region as well as traditional overseas tourists.
