Chinese visitors rising - but could Australia do better?

New figures show that international visitor numbers to Australia continue to grow, with China leading the charge, but also highlight the massive opportunity that Australia is missing, according to the industry body Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF).

New figures show that international visitor numbers to Australia continue to grow, with China leading the charge, but also highlight the massive opportunity that Australia is missing, according to the industry body Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF). 

The latest official overseas arrivals and departures figures show the number of international visitors rose 2.9% in August to be up 8.2% for the year. TTF CEO Margy Osmond said the growth is healthy, but it could be even better. “The growth in overseas arrivals to Australia shows that we have plenty to offer international visitors, with an additional 509,000 arriving here over the past 12 months,” she said. “China is making a significant contribution to that, with arrivals up 21% for the month and 12.2% over the year. “Yet, while the growth from China is solid, it also shows that Australia is falling behind other comparable countries which are competing for Chinese visitors.

Flamin' Galah Sydney Tours and Airport Transfers are connecting with specialist Australian agents as part of a Key Distribution Program.  This is designed to capitalise on the growing numbers of Chinese visitors.  Although there may be more Chinese visiting other countries, Australia is certainly not lacking too much and our private and customised tours to places like the Blue Mountains, the Hunter Valley, Manly and Sydney city sights and Bondi are very much targetting the influx of Chinese visitors.
