Our demand priorities

Tourism Tasmania will focus on supporting the rebuild of Tasmania’s visitor economy and ensure demand for travel to the state supports our efforts to restore important air and sea access to Tasmania.

  • Encourage Tasmanians to explore our state and support our local tourism and hospitality businesses: Make Yourself at Home is now live encouraging Tasmanians to travel around their own backyard and explore for day trips, weekends and longer periods. Welcome Back is also in market to encourage Tasmanians to get out support their local hospitality venues.
  • Increase our presence in the domestic marketplace: The first phase of our interstate marketing program has commenced to continue building interest in our state prior to the borders reopening. Phases two and three will be implemented from mid-October to evolve our brand and content and drive conversion.
  • New Zealand campaign: Tourism Tasmania will be promoting the state in New Zealand from in early 2021 to drive awareness and entice New Zealanders to holiday in Tasmania to experience everything the state has to offer.
  • Tasmania as a world leading road trip destination: Our state is the perfect touring destination and this style of travel will be seen more than ever as a safe travel option. We know these travellers stay longer and spend more in regional communities and our touring strategy will position the state as a premier destination in the mind of these consumers. The five Tasmanian Drive Journeys will be launched to the intrastate market in October.
  • Unordinary Adventures: Our Unordinary Adventures program will continue to promote the state and target travellers who are passionate about walking, golf, fly fishing and mountain biking to pursue their passion by holidaying in Tasmania.
