A new TripAdvisor study has revealed an increasing interest from international travellers in visiting Australia. The US is the fastest growing major inbound tourism market for Australia, with an impressive 48% growth in interest compared to last year.
Although the US and the UK remain strong markets for Australia, emerging markets such as Brazil and India have seen a significant increase of interest in travelling to the lucky country.
“Interest in Australian accommodations on TripAdvisor has increased more than 15% year-on-year, confirming Australia as a much loved and desired destination by travellers from both near and afar,” TripAdvisor for Business’s Australia territory manager Avril Carter said.
“Not only do we see some of the biggest growth in interest coming from emerging inbound tourism markets such as Brazil and India, it’s also notable to see a growing interest from Aussies researching trips in their own country.”
