Vis­i­tor ex­pen­di­ture in­creases

North East Tourist News - - Milawa & District -

THE lat­est Na­tional Vis­i­tor Sur­vey re­sults re­leased by Tourism Re­search Aus­tralia in De­cem­ber 2015 show that do­mes­tic overnight vis­i­tor ex­pen­di­ture in Vic­to­ria was $11.9 bil­lion in the year end­ing Septem­ber 2015.

This rep­re­sents a 5.9 per cent in­crease year-on-year, which was in line with the na­tional av­er­age and ahead of New South Wales (+4.6 per cent) and Queens­land (+2.7 per cent).

The in­crease in ex­pen­di­ture in Vic­to­ria was driven pre­dom­i­nantly by do­mes­tic overnight vis­i­tor spend in Mel­bourne (+10.2 per cent to $6.9 bil­lion) whereas overnight vis­i­tor ex­pen­di­ture in re­gional Vic­to­ria re­mained rel­a­tively flat (+0.5 per cent to $5.0 bil­lion).
