Domestic market sustaining tourism performance
Continued strong growth in domestic visitation and visitor nights is sustaining Australian tourism according to the latest National Visitor Survey (NVS) and International Visitor Survey (IVS) results from Tourism Research Australia.
Continued strong growth in domestic visitation and visitor nights in Australia shows 12% growth in capital city visitor nights and 5.6% growth in regional visitor nights
The domestic figures demonstrated strong growth in visitor nights for the purpose of business (15.9%) and holiday (9.2%), a factor of the weak Australian dollar, investment in marketing and events and an unprecedented wave of investment in new hotel openings and refurbishments.
While the international market has softened, key markets such as the USA and Japan are showing good growth. The USA market growth is a testament to the continued impact of last year’s ‘Crocodile Dundee’ campaign, in addition to economic and trade factors.
Growth from Japan will continue to be sustained by initiatives such as the new ANA flights to Perth, and the Federal Government announcement in early September, of expanded air services arrangements between Australia and Japan from March 2020.
