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.
