Brits boost record South Australian tourism numbers

South Australia is welcoming a record number of visitors, with the State’s visitor economy soaring to an all-time-high of $6.9 billion. This result follows a strong campaign by the South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC), which highlights the State’s impressively unique cultural, wildlife, and food & wine attractions.

The United Kingdom has maintained its position as the largest visitor market, with 71,000 visitors making the journey.

Acting Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, David Pisoni, said the results were pleasing and a testament to the hard work and passion of thousands of local tourism operators.

“When we attract more tourists to experience the wonders of South Australia and our world-class events we grow our economy and help create more local jobs,’’ Minister Pisoni said.

“We look forward to building on this momentum by ensuring that South Australia continues to deliver world-class events and experiences to our valued visitors particularly in the regions, through new and exciting government initiatives.”
