This report provides details of the contribution of tourism to the Queensland economy. The Office of Economic and Statistical Research (OESR) measures this contribution by compiling a Queensland Tourism Satellite Account. This report provides details of the economic contribution of spending by international, interstate and overnight intrastate visitors and day visitors in 2003-04.
This is the third report on the contribution of tourism to the Queensland economy prepared by OESR. The first report, The Contribution of International and Domestic Visitor Expenditure to the Queensland Economy: 1998-99, was released in May 2001. These initial estimates were subsequently updated in a second, regional contribution report, The Contribution of International and Domestic Visitor Expenditure to the Queensland Regional Economies: 1998-99, which was released in May 2002. The current report updates the aggregate Queensland estimate to 2003-04.
The project has been commissioned by Tourism Queensland. OESR also contributed to the cost of the project.
