History
The Council of Australian Tour Operators (CATO) was formed and incorporated as an independent association in September 1999.

Prior to the CATO incorporation, Tour Operators were associated with the Australian Council of Tour Wholesalers (ACTW) which was a division of the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA).

CATO’s independence coincided with the restructuring of AFTA in September 1999.

While Tour Operators and Wholesalers have a professional affiliation with Retail Travel Agents, their independence allows CATO to focus squarely on the specific issues related to them and their particular network. Today CATO is an industry hallmark and will continue to strive toward its goals.
