PLEASE NOTE: In order to improve the reliability of information presented for the Capricorn, Gladstone and Bundaberg regions, data for these regions will now be combined and reported as the
SGBR Regional Snapshot
This snapshot includes the number of Australian and international visitors to the Southern Great Barrier Reef and highline trip details (why they came, where they came from, what they spent) and also includes changes over time, drivers of these changes and insights into trends. This is supplemented by interpretation and comparisons to other national tourism trends.
Gladstone residents have their say on tourism
When tourism development is in line with the aspirations of the local community it provides for a more authentic tourist experience and also attracts stronger community support. A survey was conducted with Gladstone residents to determine their perceptions of tourism's positive and negative impacts.
