Regional tourism is a vital sector of the Australian economy and key to the sustainability and vibrancy of many of our communities. Nearly half of the nation’s tourism expenditure $107.1 Billion* occurs in regional Australia. As well, tourism employs 534,000* people directly in tourism related industries, which is more Australians than mining and more than forestry, agriculture and fishing combined.
The people who make up this industry are dedicated, passionate and world class visionaries. The ARTN is the peak body that represents these regional tourism practitioners and acts as a hub for collaboration, cooperation, ideas generation, knowledge sharing, networking and so much more. The ARTN, on behalf of its members, advocates the fostering of sustainable regional development and amplifies key messages to government, other industries and industry sectors, researchers, educators and the public.
