    During the 1960's and 1970's the tourism function was linked with that of State Development and Decentralization and was administered by a number of tourism agencies with the Departments which oversaw the whole area, i.e. The Premier's Department and later the Department of State Development and Decentralization, and State Development, Decentralization and Tourism.

    The Tourism Development Authority and subsequently the Ministry of Tourism and Division of Tourism maintained their own correspondence series, of which only a small portion has remained intact. The rest of the series must have been either top numbered into the central registry series established in 1977 or transferred to the Victorian Tourism Commission in 1983.

    The few files remaining cover a range of functional and administrative subjects including the Dartmouth Dam Project, charter flights and the Staff Development Committee.

    The files consist of a front and back cover (no spine) held together with a filing lace. The front covers are blue in colour, headed `Tourist Development Authority' with appropriate file identification and file movement markings.
