Every dollar spent on tourism generates 81 cents in other parts of the Australian economy, a higher multiplier than the mining, agriculture and financial services sectors. Importantly, 43 cents of every tourism dollar is spent in regional Australia.
On top of that, every dollar invested in marketing Australia as a destination returns $16 in tourism export spending.
