Total visitors - Average length of stay - Expenditure - India Market Insights
31,000 up 3 per cent
30.7 nights down 2.8 per cent
$63 million down 8 per cent Overall, the number of Indian visitors to Australia grew 7 per cent in 2012, driven by a solid 16 per cent increase in the Leisure segment, which accounts for 55 per cent of arrivals. For the year-ending September 2012, the Leisure segment also performed well with growth across expenditure, visitor nights, duration of stay, and dispersed nights. Despite the strong Leisure result, overall expenditure in Australia from Indian visitors decreased 16 per cent, affected strongly by the decline in Education and Employment spend. In addition, the slowdown in the Indian economy and the continued depreciation of the Indian Rupee have also had an impact.
