Regional Tourism Estimates (RTEs)

The Regional Tourism Estimates (RTEs) provided regional stakeholders with absolute dollar estimates of tourism expenditure at a detailed regional level — that is, by regional council, territorial authority, visitors’ country of origin and industry. They were superseded by the Monthly Regional Tourism Estimates (MRTEs) in 2016.
