Economic Development

Tourism is the most significant economic activity in the Jervis Bay Territory. Approximately 450,000 tourists visit each year including day-trippers and campers who enjoy the facilities of the Booderee National Park.

Financial Arrangements/Service Delivery

The Commonwealth and the ACT entered into Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) for the continued provision of services in 2012.

Jervis Bay Territory does not currently participate in the established revenue-sharing arrangements between the Commonwealth, the States, the other mainland Territories and local government. Rather, government services are funded from the department's Administered Budget appropriations.
