North leads tourism gains

Northern Tasmania recorded an 11 per cent increase in visitors in 2016, as the State exceeded 1.2 million visitors for the first time. Total statewide visitor numbers grew by 7 per cent, with visitor spending increasing by 10 per cent to $2.14 billion. The Premier, Will Hodgman, said: “Our regions are sharing in the benefits of the tourism boom with northern Tasmania the standout. The east coast was close behind recording a 10 per cent increase, while Cradle Coast was up 7 per cent.” Tasmania is ahead of the 5 per cent growth rate required annually to reach the Government’s tourism target of 1.5 million visitors by 2020. People arriving by air increased by 7 per cent, while sea visitors grew 11 per cent. International visitors increased by 11 per cent, with tourists from the United States up 13 per cent.
