Leisure market drives latest international tourism growth Down Under

Tourism Australia has published an international tourism snapshot featuring arrivals, spend and aviation data for the 12 months to June 2017 as well as a more extensive international market update delving into the current state of Australia’s international tourism.

Visitor arrivals growth for the year was driven by holiday makers, up 11 per cent, and an increase in people coming to visiting friends and relatives, up by 5 per cent. Double digit growth in holiday arrivals was seen from Indonesia (35%), India (21%), Malaysia (20%), Canada (19%), USA (18%), Korea (17%) and Japan (16%) over the 12 month period.

Uncertainty following the Brexit vote and a sliding British pound continued to have a dampening impact on spending by visitors from the United Kingdom with spend down 8 per cent.
