The Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW) is Australia’s national platform for digital tourism information. You can easily create a listing for your accommodation, event, tour, food and drink offering, and more. These listings appear on our consumer website, southaustralia.com, and other tourism websites. As a South Australian business, this is available to you for free.
For further details on how to get started, watch a video specifically for tourism operators here, check out the FAQs below and download our ATDW fact sheets and guidelines at the bottom of this page.
The SATC hosts ATDW information sessions throughout the year. Visit our Industry Events page for more information.
Getting Started With ATDW
In 2019/20 southaustralia.com saw 7.5 million visits which generated more than 1 million ATDW leads!
An ATDW listing for your business will provide valuable exposure. Your listing will feature on our consumer website, southaustralia.com. It will also feature on Tourism Australia’s website, australia.com, as well as other distributors which can be found on the ATDW website. These websites may engage in digital marketing activity from time to time which as a result, can influence increased exposure to ATDW listings.
Please see an example of recent digital marketing advertising from SATC using an ATDW listing to the right.
As a South Australian operator, it's free to list your business on ATDW and to have your information featured on southaustralia.com. Leads generated to your website from southaustralia.com are also commission free.

Make sure you create your business listing in the correct category when choosing a listing type. ATDW Guidelines for some categories are listed below, please review these prior to selecting the right category for your business.
For example, if you are listing an event, you will need to select 'event'. If you are listing a Visitor Information Centre, you will need to select 'information service'. Each listing type has different requirements and provides varying functionality to best showcase your business, so it is important that you select the correct listing. If you need to change the category of your listing, you will need to create a new listing in the correct listing type. You cannot change the listing type without doing this.
Some businesses are eligible in multiple categories, such as an Attraction that also offers tours and experiences; we would recommend listing the business as an Attraction, as well as a ‘Tour/Experience’. This will allow the business to take advantage of greater functionality within ATDW.
ATDW has specific image requirements. Photos for your listing must be representative of the listing and contain little to no text or writing. They cannot be posters or contain logos.
The minimum size required is 2048x1536 pixels, and no larger than 10mb.
You can find photos that may be suitable for your listing on our Media Gallery.
