International Visitors spend more than $40.6 billion
Spending by international tourists visiting Australia has reached a new record - exceeding $40 billion for the first time. International visitors spent a record $40.6 billion in the year to June 2017, an increase of 7 per cent on the previous year.
This stellar result is revealed in the latest International Visitor Survey (IVS) released today. The record spending is being driven by record numbers of international tourists who are staying longer and spending more while visiting Australia. With wallets wide-open, international tourists are driving economic growth and creating jobs. All states and territories are sharing in the record growth, with spending up across the country.
The International Visitor Survey results for the year ending June 2017 are now available on the Tourism Research Australia website:
