Tourism Research Australia’s General Manager Wayne Calder has invited the tourism community to participate in a discussion on tourism research now open in the Portal's Online Community

The draft National Research Agenda is an initiative of the Tourism Research Advisory Board and provides a framework for national research priorities from now to 2020 and beyond. The Agenda has four key pillars: Current market dynamics, Emerging trends, Capacity building and Dissemination. 

The coverage of these themes is designed to minimise gaps in research, which will allow for a better response to industry development, policy development and marketing priorities. 

To join in the discussion on the draft Agenda, or any other TRA research issues with TRA's Wayne Calder click here. Alternatively, email for more information.
