Tourism and Events Queensland (TEQ) provides tourism research and insights to a variety of stakeholders which can assist decision-making and strategy development.
As part of this, TEQ manages the analysis and publication of results for Queensland based on major national tourism surveys: the National Visitor Survey, International Visitor Survey, Survey of Tourist Accommodation and Overseas Arrivals and Departures. Results from other research projects are also collated to ensure a robust cross-section of tourism information.
Primary research is also undertaken by TEQ to better understand the needs of Queensland's visitor target markets and the experiences Queensland's destinations can offer to meet those needs. This research includes consumer demand research, segmentation research, destination brand health analysis and analysis of community attitudes to tourism.
Visitation to Queensland
These fact sheets provide an overview of total visitors to Queensland and its regions, i.e both domestic and international. The information includes the number of visitors, their reason for travel and their expenditure.
Note: International Visitor Survey (IVS) interviews have been paused due to border closures in late March. As a result from June 2020, the IVS has been produced using more extensive immigration and incoming passenger card information and spend has been imputed from previous IVS interviews.
Due to small sample sizes, the three-year trend change has been used to analyse changes in some regions.
