Abstract The last decade has seen a strong growth in tourism activity in Queensland, Australia, with significant increases in visitor arrivals, tourist spending, and investments in infrastructure. The analysis of tourism to date has traditionally been handled in an input-output framework which has two major drawbacks: its static and linearity assumptions. This study estimates the economic significance of tourism activity in the Queensland economy in an integrated modelling framework, which combines the social accounting (cross-sectorial) matrix with econometric (time-series) relationships. This provides the basis for a much more comprehensive analysis of tourism activity and, as such, is superior to the traditional input-output analysis.
