Edwards, Griffin and Hayllar (2007) argued that research on urban tourism was not reflective of its degree of importance relative to tourism in other types of destinations. Further there is a paucity of Australian-based research. To partially address this imbalance, this study aimed to enhance the understanding of both domestic and international tourists experiences of two Australian urban destinations, Sydney and Canberra, through an examination of the key attributes sought by visitors to those destinations. Additionally, the study sought to understand the relative importance of these destination attributes and the extent to which tourists were satisfied with their experiences of these attributes.
