Australia and Sydney seeing record highs for inbound visitors

The most recent data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) shows that short-term visitor arrivals to Australia increased almost 8 per cent, to a record of 6.6 million for the year ending June 2014.

‚ÄčThe most recent data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) shows that short-term visitor arrivals to Australia increased almost 8 per cent, to a record of 6.6 million for the year ending June 2014.

Results from the latest International Visitor Survey (IVS) show that international visitor expenditure for the 12 months ending March 2014 also reached a record of A$29.6 billion, up six per cent for the year.

The results come as Tourism Australia releases its Quarterly Market Update on the state of the industry. According to the report, international visitation to Australia is tracking strongly, with growth driven by the leisure segment, with holiday arrivals up 9.7 per cent and Visiting Friends and Relatives (VFR) up 14.9 per cent for the year. Record visitor numbers from New Zealand, Germany, the USA, and Malaysia were also recorded for the 12 months.

Flamin' Galah Sydney Tours and Airport Transfers have enjoyed a bumper winter period and this is reflected in the increase in number of people that have been recorded visiting Australia and Sydney.

The record number coming from New Zealand is very positive as it is this market that is very responsive to our Home and Away Tour to Palm Beach Summer Bay.  The USA and Malaysia markets are two markets which are well suited to our private and customised tours in and around Sydney.  These tours provide visitors from all over the World 100% freedom when in comes to designing their own itinerary and having the day entirely based around their own needs and preferences.  This is perfect for large families or groups who want to experience iconic and famous places in and out of Sydney such as the Hunter Valley wine tasting region, the Blue Mountains and also the Sydney city sights and Bondi area.
