This technical report presents a snapshot of socio-economic data and indicators relevant to the current state of tourism visitation and the tourism industry in the Great Barrier Reef region. A wide range of secondary data is compiled, showing patterns of regional tourism visitation, industry use and activities in the GBR. For the first time, new primary data are included from SELTMP surveys conducted over mid 2013, representing 2621 tourists who visited the GBR region (from Cooktown to Bundaberg), as well as 119 GBR tourism operations. These survey data provide new insights into tourists' and tourism operators' relationship, values and perceptions of the Reef, and will become an important baseline for monitoring and understanding industry trends, and the potential impacts of changes in the environment and society.
