Visitor spending may just hit 2020 target

Long-term visitor expenditure forecasts released last week by Tourism Research Australia show Australia will only marginally reach the lower end of its target range by its 2020 deadline.

​Long-term visitor expenditure forecasts released last week by Tourism Research Australia show Australia will only marginally reach the lower end of its target range by its 2020 deadline.

The forecast shows total spending growing at 1.7 per cent a year over the next decade which would see spending in 2020 reach just $115 billion – the low point of a $115 billion to $140 billion target range.

Asian markets will continue to drive growth in international arrivals, led by China which will provide more than one in every ten arrivals, with India and Singapore close behind. Overall arrivals for 2014-15 are forecast to top 7 million, with Asia providing 58 per cent of all visitors.

Flamin' Galah Sydney Tours and Airport Transfers have provided many tours and for Asian markets, particularly from Singapore  It is clear now that the trend for visitors from these nations are preferring their own customised private tours and this is something we are providing with great success.  Trips to the Blue Mountains and the Hunter Valley from Sydney are certainly some of the most popular requests, as well as Sydney city sights tours.

Tourism and Transport Forum chief executive, Ken Morrison, said the forecasts showed urgent action was needed to ensure Australia met its Tourism 2020 growth target of boosting overnight spending to up to $140 million.
