Flinders Island Visitor Survey

During the first six months of 2009, Tourism Tasmania in cooperation with the Flinders Council undertook research to produce the 2008-09 Flinders Island Visitor Survey results and report.

The main outcomes of the survey are to provide information to support the ongoing development and promotion of Flinders Island as a holiday destination.

A reliable estimate of visitation to Flinders Island had not been possible since Tourism Tasmania completed the 1996 study. Subsequent studies were undertaken in 2000 and 2003 although airline failures midstream and the unavailability of passenger data compromised the reliability of the survey results.

This survey provides reliable estimates of the number of visitors to the island, including the number of nights and expenditure, as well as visitor behaviour and demographic information.
