About the agenda
The National Tourism Research Agenda provides a framework for identifying and informing both current and future tourism research priorities.
These priorities are consistent with the policy objectives of the National Long-Term Tourism Strategy, and are structured around four main themes:
- current market dynamics
- emerging trends
- productive capacity
The agenda seeks to engage the full spectrum of tourism-specific and industry-related research participants such as government, industry, and academic institutions, to address identified research gaps.
Coordination and development of tourism research and analysis activity under the agenda framework is a key priority for the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism.

The advisory board is chaired by the Secretary of the Department of Resources, Energy and Tourism and includes representatives from: Tourism Research Australia (TRA), Tourism Australia, state tourism organisations, industry, unions and the academia sector.
