Domestic visitors to Queensland and regions

NVS Infographic Icon

These snapshot reports provide an overview of the domestic visitors to Queensland and its regions. The information includes number of visitors, their reason for travel and their expenditure, and is supplemented by interpretations and comparisons to other tourism trends within Australia and Queensland.

Note: Due to small sample size, the three-year trend change has been used to analyse changes in the Fraser Coast, Mackay, Whitsundays and Outback regions.

Important Notes

New National Visitor Survey methodology, 2019

Tourism Research Australia has transitioned NVS sampling to 100% mobile phone interviews (from 50% mobile phone/50% landline) to reflect current phone usage trends. The change in methodology has seen a break in series, so please use caution when comparing 2019 results with previous time periods. Note that 2017 and 2018 estimates have been revised to align with the latest release of ABS population projections and will differ slightly from previously published estimates.

For the revised 2017 and 2018 numbers, see Tourism Data Explorer V2.5.

For further information, see NVS methodology.
