Strong growth continues for visitors Down Under!

Australia welcomed 796,700 international visitors during February 2016, an increase of just over 10 per cent compared to the previous year, as the country continues to see strong results from its long term ‘Tourism 2020’ strategy.

Tourism Australia Managing Director John O’Sullivan said that February’s ABS international arrivals data provided further evidence of the important contribution Australia’s tourism industry was making to the overall economic well-being of the country.

“February’s numbers continue what has been a very strong start to 2016, with North Asia and South East Asia leading the charge, but significant contributions also coming from our traditional markets such as the United States and Europe.

“It’s great to see Japan returning to growth, benefiting from significant increases recently in aviation capacity, particularly from the full-service carriers,” he said.

Mr O’Sullivan said next week would see Tourism Australia’s latest aquatic and coastal campaign rolled out in China, further building demand for Australia amongst its fastest growing and most valuable inbound market.

The latest visitor arrivals brings Australia to 7.60 million for the year ending February 2016, an increase of nine per cent relative to the previous year, representing an extra 624,000 visitors.

Leisure arrivals continued to drive international arrivals growth, with an increase of 10.3 per cent over the 12 month period. Business travel is showing signs of softening, with declines of 5.0 per cent for the same period.

Sydney's ICC wins national infrastructure award





Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC Sydney) at Darling Harbour has been named Australia’s best infrastructure project at the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s National Infrastructure Awards.

Andrew Constance Minister for Transport and Infrastructure welcomed the award saying the ICC was a jewel in the NSW Government’s infrastructure crown.

“I am extremely proud that this Government has delivered a world class transformation to the Darling Harbour precinct with the stunning International Convention Centre at its heart,” Mr Constance said.

ICC Sydney cements Sydney as a premium choice on the world stage for major events that this nation has never before had the facilities to host.

“The NSW Government remains focused on the delivery of infrastructure that transforms our state and has a positive impact on our economy. The ICC certainly delivers on this.”

The $1.5 billion ICC Sydney was recognised for its design excellence, construction timeline and outstanding financial performance as well as delivering the nation a new and emblematic piece of business events and tourism infrastructure.

The convention centre officially opened in December 2016 and has already hosted over 170 major events including the Fast 4 Tennis Showdown and performances by Keith Urban and Nick Cave. The convention centre is also generating significant international interest with 115 global events confirmed for Sydney over the next few years.
