Sentiment takes hit


TOURISM Australia has revealed that the intention to book a domestic holiday among Aussies in the next month has “decreased rapidly” in the wake of lockdowns and border restrictio­ns, according to the tourism body’s latest Domestic Sentiment Tracker.

However on a more positive note, 46% of Australian­s have expressed an interest in taking a domestic trip in the next six months, while 78% of people said the availabili­ty of COVID-19 vaccines had increased their confidence to travel in Australia.

MEANWHILE Tourism Australia revealed its strategy remained committed to encouragin­g Aussies to holiday like an int’l visitor by seeing more, doing more, travelling for longer and spending more on experience­s.
