​The domestic market – WA’s largest source of visitors - includes WA (intrastate) as well as the remainder of Australia (interstate).  

Western Australia is divided into five tourism regions. Each has its own Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO) – a peak tourism marketing body for that region.

Tourism WA provides funding to the RTOs to support their marketing activity in their region in alignment with Tourism WA’s strategic marketing direction. The majority of this activity is in the intrastate and relevant international markets, with a small percentage of their budget spend in the interstate market.

To promote WA to the intrastate market and encourage travel within the State, we focus on:  

  • Brand marketing to inspire intrastate consumers to explore Western Australia; 

  • Cooperative marketing by working with highly-recognised retail travel brands that have the ability to retail a wide range of Western Australian tourism products and generate bookings;

  • Events marketing to communicate that there is always something on in our extraordinary State; and,

  • Special projects such as the Royalties for Regions funded WA Caravan and Camping Action Plan.

Our campaigns target 'Dedicated Discovers' (those who want to discover something new) aged between 35-64 years in Perth. These consumers generally value experiences, are curious minded and want to get off the beaten track.
