Tourism WA works across government and industry to determine the needs of destinations in terms of access, accommodation, attractions and amenities. We seek to facilitate the filling of gaps through private and public investment, which in turn helps to grow tourism.

Tourism WA drives a number of strategic programs and supports major projects that will draw visitors to particular destinations.​​

2020 Tourism Strategy 

Our strategy outlines seven focus areas to help us increase the value of tourism in WA to $12 billion by 2020.

Caravan and camping 

In 2016, an estimated 1.6 million domestic and international visitors spent 7.7 million nights in caravan or camping accommodation.

Cruise shipping 

Cruise shipping is an important part of the State’s tourism industry, generating $275 million in expenditure in 2015-16.

Aviation access 

Reliable aviation is crucial for the State's economy and for the growth of the tourism industry.

Regional visitor centre grants 

The program provides grant funding to regional visitor centres to make them more financially sustainable.

Food and wine tourism 

WA’s high quality food and beverages attract around 400,000 dedicated gourmet travellers.

Aboriginal tourism 

To help grow Aboriginal tourism in WA, we are implementing ​the Aboriginal Tourism Development Program and Camping with Custodians.
