Free ATDW Listings for Victorian tourism businesses

ATDW listings provide an online presence at national, state, regional and destination levels through the key online tourism marketing platforms of visitvictoria.comaustralia.com and more.

In response to the economic impact of bushfires and COVID-19, Visit Victoria, with the support of the Victorian Government and Regional Tourism Boards, is providing free 12-month ATDW listings to all Victorian tourism businesses.

Providing free ATDW listings saves each and every tourism business $295 and importantly ensures businesses continue to be promoted on the tourism websites that will maximise their exposure as part of recovery marketing campaign activity.

Existing ATDW subscribers have already received a 12-month extension to their listing. Eligible businesses have until June 30, 2021 to create an ATDW business listing free of charge.

How to claim your free ATDW listing

If you already have a live ATDW listing:

There's nothing you need to do. A free 12-month extension has been applied to your listing subscription. You can find your new listing expiry date on your ATDW-Online listing dashboard.

As always, we would encourage you to regularly update your listing. You can find instructions to update your listing here.

If you have an expired ATDW listing:

Your listing will still be available in your ATDW-Online account for you to update and renew free of charge.

  1. First, you need to request a coupon code from your Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO). This will be used as your form of payment when renewing your listing. You can find the contact details of your RTO or Local Council further below.
  2. Once you have your coupon code, go to your ATDW-Online account and follow these steps to renew your listing.

If you don't have an ATDW listing and would like to create one:

  1. First, you'll need to confirm that your tourism business meets ATDW eligibility criteria. If you're unsure of your eligibility, contact us.
  2. Once you have confirmed your eligibility, you need to request a coupon code from your Regional Tourism Organisation (RTO). This will be applied at the payment stage of the listing creation process in ATDW-Online. You can find the contact details of your RTO or Local Council further below.
  3. In the meantime, we recommend you prepare a description of your business if you don't have one already. Aim for 2-3 short paragraphs at a maximum of 200 words. You'll also need a selection of five to 10 high-quality images to showcase your business. Images need to be in landscape orientation and at least 1600 x 1200 pixels in size. You can find some advice for selecting and uploading images here.
  4. Once you have received your coupon code and have your description and images ready, go to www.atdw-online.com.au to register an account and create your listing. You can find some instructions to guide you here.
