ATIC National Policy

The Australian Tourism Industry Council (ATIC) is the national representative body of Australia’s State and Territory tourism industry councils (TIC).

Together, ATIC members represent almost 9000 tourism operators across the length and breadth of the country, from Broome to Bruny Island, and Port Lincoln to Port Douglas. This is easily the largest and most diverse representation of tourism operators across Australia.

Tourism is one of the key contributing industries within the Australian economy.

Our industry supports the employment of almost 1 million Australians and contributes close to $50 billion to the Australian economy annually. Tourism reaches every corner of the country generating growth, investment, jobs and vibrancy in our largest cities through to our most remote communities.

It is important for ATIC to develop strategic policy decisions and advocate these to support our industry and be even more competitive on the global stage.
