West Australian tourism operators and event organisers can list their business/event for free with the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW) - with the information being distributed and published across hundreds of websites.

​What is ATDW?

Simply think of the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse as a database of national tourism content. It is supported and used by all the state tourism organisations on their websites, mobile apps and more. Its content is distributed to hundreds of travel websites, including Tourism Australia’s, and is available in both simple and traditional Chinese.

For more information watch the videos below or visit the ATDW website.

ATDW Introduction

ATDW for Tourism Operators

ATDW for Distributors

Why should I consider listing?

If you want to be listed on Tourism WA’s consumer website westernaustralia.com, it is essential that you have a record on this database. The same data is used in our mobile app and where applicable on campaign microsites.

It will also be featured on Tourism Australia’s website as well as other websites who have elected to take on the data feed. To find out more about distributors visit the ATDW website.

Who (and what) can be listed?

Tourism operators ranging from accommodation providers, paid attractions, tour operators, hire companies and information services can be listed. Listings are free however, as Tourism WA supports an accreditation policy, it is a requirement for operators to have the relevant accreditation in order to be added to the database.  Visit our accreditation page for more information.

Other records that are captured in this database are tourism destinations, free attractions, restaurants and events. These do not require accreditation.

How long till my listing is live?

This can vary but we usually allow for at least 48 hours/two working days for listings to be published onto the database. This is to allow for our quality assurance process to be undertaken.

What goes into a listing?

It is important that correct, accurate and up-to-date information is provided. The below are some of the fields that the database can capture.

  1. Business name 
  2. Address (to enable geo-location representation on maps)
  3. High quality images
  4. Valid website address
  5. Valid contact details
  6. Social media links
  7. For events, start and end dates are mandatory

To find out more visit ATDW’s website.

Is my listing in Chinese?

Not necessarily. In 2012-13, Tourism Australia translated all the content into simple and traditional Chinese. The database is constantly being updated and Tourism WA reviews only destination and attraction content and administers updates to Chinese records. Operators who would like to create a Chinese listing or update their existing one will need to cover the costs of doing so. If you need any further guidance on this please contact our digital marketing via email on online@westernaustralia.com
