Australian hotels look to two million Chinese visitors in the next decade
On the eve of Chinese New Year and the start of the first-ever Australia-China Year of Tourism, Tourism Accommodation Australia (TAA) believes that the massive expansion in Australia’s hotel sector will help drive Chinese inbound numbers from the current one million to up to two million over the next decade.
Since 2009, Chinese visitor numbers have grown over 350% from 300,000 to 1.1 million, with China expected to become Australia’s leading inbound market by the end of the year. China is also one of the highest spending markets, injecting $8.3 billion into the Australian economy last year, with spend estimated to grow to $13 billion by 2020.
