      An update for SA Tourism.

      South Australia is one of a few places in the world where you can get up, close and personal with the Great White Shark.

      Apart from offering a unique tourism experience, South Australia’s shark cage diving industry has a real impact on our state’s economy.

      It currently employs about 80 people and pumps $12.8 million into our visitor economy.

      Hi

      I am delighted to announce that direct flights to Adelaide from mainland China have now commenced with the arrival of China Southern Airlines Flight CZ 663 at Adelaide Airport this morning.

      The inaugural flight marks the beginning of three flights per week to Adelaide from Guangzhou which will trigger increased Chinese visitation to our state.

      The service is expected to inject an annual $23.4 million into South Australia’s $5.9 billion visitor economy and create more than 135 jobs across the state.

      China is a once in a lifetime opportunity that could see an estimated 57,000 Chinese visitors contributing $450 million to the South Australian economy by 2020.

      These direct flights will improve links between China and South Australia, making it easier for people to travel between the two destinations for business, education and leisure.

      To find out more, view the media release
      here.

      We have a range of industry resources available as part of our Understanding China project. These include
      guidelines and fact sheets and a video presentation from Richard Beere, Managing Director of Fastrak Asian Solutions.

      Regards,

      Rodney Harrex
      Chief Executive
      South Australian Tourism Commission

      The benefits of the Tour Down Under!

      Record crowds meant TDU 2017 injected $56 million into South Australian economy

      RECORD Tour Down Under crowds have injected more than $56 million into the South Australian economy.

      Independent research released on Wednesday shows that almost 840,000 spectators — including 43,000 from overseas and interstate — lined the streets for one of the state’s most popular events.
      The UCI WorldTour event injected $56.5 million into the economy and created the equivalent of 683 fulltime jobs, according to figures from McGregor Tan Research.
      Tourism Minister Leon Bignell is challenging fans to break the one million spectator mark for the 2018 race, which will run from Saturday, January 13, to Sunday, January 21.
      “Mark (the 2018 dates) on your calendars and get involved in the 20th celebrations of the TDU,” Mr Bignell said.
      “Let’s aim for a million spectators and make the event bigger and better than ever.
      “If you’ve ever been to a TDU, make sure you make it out to at least one stage and witness the excitement of the biggest bike race outside the Tour de France.
      “These results are fantastic and speak volumes for the support the TDU receives from both cyclists and cycling fans across the globe.
      “It was also terrific to see the biggest yet contingent of international teams riding in the Santos Women’s Tour.”
      Next year’s event, which will be the 20th edition of the race, will run over nine days.
      Race director Mike Turtur hopes to pull off some surprises to help mark the milestone.
      “(The) results announcement comes with confirmation of our event dates for 2018, which is fantastic (and) still making us the first UCI WorldTour race on the calendar,” Mr Turtur said.
      “Plans are well under way and we hope to have some surprises for the fans.”
      The 2018 race routes for both men and women will be released in July.
