Tourism Exceeds 2020 Growth
Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, Steven Ciobo, says tourists spent nearly $97 billion in overnight travel in Australia during the last 12 months, the latest figures from Tourism Research Australia show.

A joint initiative between industry and government, Tourism 2020 was conceived in 2009 and included a stretch target of reaching between $115 billion and $140 billion in overnight visitor spending by the year 2020.
