Tourism worth $48 billion to Australia

Tourism worth $48 billion to Australia

The Gold Coast is jam packed with exciting activities, great destinations and lots of accommodation options. If you’re planning a holiday down under, you will not find a better place to go to than the Gold Coast. Whether you’re holidaying with your family or group of friends, the Gold Coast has something in store for everyone.

Australia and the Gold Coast in particular, is currently enjoying a very welcome surge in tourism. Recent figures realised by the Australian Bureau of Statistics have revealed that the tourism wave in the region is worth $48 billion, which is certainly massive. These figures confirm that the tourism economy in the region is experiencing a “super-growth” phase.

Tourism is contributing to the Australian GDP

The tourism industry in Australia is growing three times quicker than the economy. As a matter of fact, the tourism industry accounts for 3% of Australia’s GDP. Also, the industry employs almost 1 million people, which represents about 10% of the Australian workforce.

Gold Coast at the forefront of Australian Tourism

The tourism boom in Australia is being spearheaded by the Gold Coast. In 2015, the Gold Coast alone received more than 902,000 foreign visitors. This represented a rise of 6% from 2014 numbers. With Gold Coast apartments and hotels being booked to the full, the revenue per room rate was also up by 15% in March.

I’m sure you’re eager to visit the Gold Coast for a holiday yourself. By all means, do so – but make sure to book Gold Coast accommodation in advance. With a large inflow of tourists, hotel availability can be difficult to get on the spot.
