Beyond 2020 Government Report


In February 2018, the Australian Government established the Beyond Tourism 2020 Steering Committee to report to Government on its vision f or the future of the tourism industry. The Committee submitted its industry report to Government in December 2018.

The Committee calls for a strategy to increase visitor numbers, trip lengths and spend for all visitors, encourage regional dispersal and empower the tourism industry to thrive in our increasingly digital world.Industry and governments must collaborate to target emerging tourism markets, liberalise aviation supply, attract investment in infrastructure, promote tourism workforce pathways and maximise the capture and use of a range of data sources.

Doing so will help the industry reach overnight visitor expenditure of between $181 – $250 billion by 2030.
