Agoda NYE study
AUSTRALIANS are opting to stay closer to home this New Year’s Eve, according to data from Agoda. com, which names Melbourne as the top destination for ringing in the new year, knocking Bali from the top spot to number two.
Aussies are also set to flock to Sydney, which continues to hold third place for the third consecutive year, as well as Perth (#6), the Gold Coast (#7), and Brisbane (#8) for the end-of-year countdown.
Those who want to experience the excitement overseas will head to Tokyo, which is now the fourth most popular NYE destination for Australians, down from #2.
