Tasmanian businesses rebound with record breaking hotel occupancy

TASMANIA PACIFIC – Tasmania has experienced record-breaking occupancy rates in March 2022, which is a testament to the resilience and determination of our world-class accommodation providers.

The Hotel Occupancy Report for last month shows that 88.15 per cent of available rooms across the State were filled, which is an increase of 6 per cent from February, and also the highest level of occupancy in a single month since before COVID began.

In the three months since our borders reopened in December we have seen a 25 per cent increase in the number of rooms filled.

In 2021 the hospitality industry contributed $723 million into the Tasmanian economy, so I am thrilled to see that occupancy rates are up and that we are on a strong path forward.

These occupancy figures show great confidence in the hospitality and visitor economy sectors and demonstrate that our plan to bring back visitors to the State is working.

Excitingly, over the next six months the Tasmanian Liberal Government is supporting 31 events to take place in every region of the State.

“We have invested $11 million into these events this year alone, which includes our investment into our Hawthorn Football Club partnership in the North through to supporting iconic events like Dark Mofo and the Festival of Voices in the South”

It also includes events like Agfest and AgriCULTURED – both in the North of the state – that not only support our tourism and hospitality sector, but also our booming agriculture industry and the journey to reach our goal of $10 billion farm-gate value by 2050.

Throughout COVID this Government has invested heavily into supporting our hospitality businesses to help them ride out the tough times they’ve all experienced, and we will continue to support this vital and vibrant sector.
