8 million visitors - Australia sets new record
Tourism Minister, Steve Ciobo, said Australia welcomed more than eight million international tourists over the last 12 months according to figures released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
This is the first time Australia has broken the eight million visitor mark and comes just 18 months after visitor numbers eclipsed seven million annually. It took more than six years for visitor numbers to climb from five to six million.
Since 2013, growth in the tourism industry has supercharged with visitor numbers breaking the six, seven, and now eight million mark. This rapid rise has come on the back of strong Coalition Government support for the tourism industry.
