The Scenic and Sightseeing Transport industry is comprised of operators that provide transport services in and around Australian tourism sites. The industry allows its customers to experience Australian tourist destinations via a range of modes of transport. The industry's main activities do not involve point-to-point transport between locations. These services are provided by larger passenger transport industries, such as passenger aviation, rail, long-distance bus providers and cruise operators. The industry's activities are dominated by maritime transport for sightseeing or recreational purposes, such as charter boat operation and same-day cruises.
Companies in this industry operate transportation equipment for scenic and sightseeing activities. This form of transport is distinguished from transit passenger services, as the emphasis is not on the efficiency or speed of the transport service but rather on providing recreation and entertainment. The service provided is usually local in nature and generally includes tour commentary highlighting features of the scenery and/or the vehicle.
