We are an incorporated membership-based organisation recognised as the peak tourism industry body representing the sectors supporting the visitor economy in the ACT and surrounding South East NSW Region.


The Canberra Region Tourism Leaders Forum works with these sectors in association with Visit Canberra, Destination Southern NSW and their respective associations and representative bodies in growing and supporting the visitor economy in the Canberra Region.

Our priority is the growth and sustainability of the visitor economy through a strong partnership approach with all those organisations working within the tourism and related sectors in the ACT and surrounding South East NSW region. Our focus is advocating for these sectors at an ACT, NSW and Federal Government level in association with the members of our organisation and their respective national bodies
