About Us

Destination Southern Tasmania (DST) is the peak tourism body for Tasmania’s southern region, stretching across the municipalities of Hobart, Glenorchy, Clarence, Brighton, Sorell, Kingborough, Huon Valley, Derwent Valley, Tasman, Central Highlands and Southern Midlands.

Funded by a combination of membership fees and support from our state government and local councils, we are an industry-led, non-profit organisation and a strong voice for tourism in our region.

We are managed by a small team of dedicated industry professionals who draw on the wealth of experience provided by our Board.

What we do

  • We work with our members and partners to improve awareness of the experiences across our region and to encourage visitors to explore further, stay longer and spend more
  • We ensure all levels of government are aware of any industry issues and we highlight the importance of tourism as an economic driver
  • We help our members to build their businesses and skills through networking functions, training workshops, mentoring sessions, and our annual DST Industry Summit
