Tasmanian Visitor Survey

The Tasmanian Visitor Survey (TVS) provides a profile of the characteristics, travel behaviour and expenditure of international and domestic visitors to Tasmania.

The survey is acknowledged as the most reliable source of statistical data on visitors to Tasmania, being based on an exit sample of more than 9000 visitors to Tasmania each year. As an island, visitors are counted as they depart from Tasmania's air and sea ports - a real advantage for data collection.

The latest TVS results, along with additional data provided by Tourism Research Australia, are published in our quarterly Tasmanian Tourism Snapshot.
