About Us

Tourism Hunter is a corporate organisation that is leading the way for the tourism industry through research, marketing and development. Tourism Hunter, formerly Hunter Regional Tourism Organisation (HRTO), works in partnership with local government, local tourism operators and stakeholders to steer the way forward and drive sustainable financial benefit from local, domestic and international tourism.

The Hunter region is a prosperous and dynamic destination with unique assets. Tourism is worth approximately $1.3billion to the Hunter economy and employs around 12,000 people directly in the region. Through managing and providing an umbrella structure for local tourism, Tourism Hunter provides practical advice and tactical insight that enables the industry to prosper long term by adapting themselves to an evolving, competitive market.

Backed by the strength and support of Destination NSW and funded by industry contribution through local tourism associations, local councils and the private sector, Tourism Hunter is governed by a skilled, dynamic and business-astute board setting the strategic direction for the organisation. Operating in a fiscally responsible manner, Tourism Hunter acts as a professional conduit between state and local tourism to maximise mutual benefits.
