South Australian Regional Visitor Strategy

 

The South Australian Regional Visitor Strategy 2020 (released May 2018) outlined the opportunities to grow South Australia’s regional visitor economy by $1 billion and create 1,000 new jobs.

Initiated by regional tourism organisations through the Regional Tourism Chairs Forum and led by Helen Edwards as Chair of the Regional Visitor Strategy Steering Committee, the strategy has been specifically tailored for each of our 11 tourism regions. The strategy is a collaboration between many stakeholders including the Local Government Association of South Australia, Regional Development Australia South Australia, South Australian Tourism Industry Council and the SATC.

Regional tourism plays a key role in the South Australian visitor economy. More than 40 per cent of the State’s total visitor expenditure is spent in regions, while only 23 per cent of South Australians live in regional areas. 

Consultation is now underway for the South Australian Regional Visitor Strategy 2025, which follows on from the 2020 Strategy and will outline the potential to grow regional visitor expenditure in our 11 tourism regions to the target of $4.0 billion by 2025. 

As part of the consultation, a survey has been distributed to industry across the regions and the findings of that survey will feed into a series of workshops held in region during September 2020 to start developing the 2025 strategy. 

More updates to come.
