THRIVE 2030 is Australia’s long-term strategy for the visitor economy. This is the final year of the Recovery Phase action plan under the strategy. We are developing the Consolidation Phase (2025 – 2027) action plan.

Have your say

We would like to hear about:

  • what has been useful for your business or region since THRIVE 2030 was launched in 2022
  • your achievements and success stories under the Recovery Phase of the strategy
  • the opportunities and challenges for your business or region. 

Do a short survey

This survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. It will ask you about:

  • your role in tourism
  • challenges facing your region or business
  • oportunities for your region or business
  • your views on the THRIVE 2030 Recovery Phase (2022 to 2024)
  • what you would like to see in the Consolidation Action Plan (2025 to 2027).

Take the survey.

The survey closes on Friday 28 June 2024.
