​Gain online exposure and commission-free leads by listing your business or events free with the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW).

This free listing will help your information be distributed and published across hundreds of websites, including our consumer website westernaustralia.com, and our mobile app Experience WA which helps visitors discover things to see and do in the State.

The ATDW collects business tourism information then stores and distributes this information to support and market local tourism businesses.  This content is electronically accessible by tourism business owners (operators), wholesalers, retailers, and distributors for use in their websites and booking systems.

​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.

Why should I consider listing?

If you want to be listed on our consumer website westernaustralia.com, it is important that you are part of the ATDW database. The same data is used in our mobile app Experience WA and where applicable, on campaign microsites.

It will also be featured on Tourism Australia’s website as well as other websites. 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 we support an accreditation policy, operators must have the relevant accreditation 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.

Inclusive tourism resources

Providing consumers with accessibility information about your business is becoming more important. 

Accessibility isn’t only about people who use wheelchairs – it can also include people with vision or hearing loss, people who need to travel with support people, people with learning challenges, allergies and intolerances. Providing people with multiple ways to book also helps operators to be more inclusive.

The Australian Tourism Data Warehouse has recently updated its database to enable tourism operators to include more detailed inclusive tourism information in their business listing. This is a great opportunity to update your listing.  We have found some useful resources and examples to help build your understanding of the value of inclusive tourism and/or how to create an access statement.
