Take a Seat Down Under

Throughout the past decade, Australia has become a growing travel destination with millions of new visitors every year.

The new boom in tourism has been contributing to the growth of many parts of the tourism sector. The influx of visitors has created a higher demand for hotels, which has led to some biggest growth since the 1980s. This trend has been driven in part by the effects of globalization: as more people in neighboring countries have more disposable income to spare.

Major Reasons for Tourism Growth in Australia

China is responsible for the largest contribution to tourism. According to an article from The Australian, Chinese tourism from Hong Kong and the mainland increased by 21% since 2015, bringing in 1.5 million new visitors from that country alone.

This boom has triggered the most notable jump in the tourism industry since the 2000 Sydney Olympics. Perth Now Sunday Times points out how there have been similar, double-digit increases from other Asian countries, specifically Malaysia, Japan, and India.  The rising number of tourists has a ripple effect that also stimulates overall job growth. Would you believe there’s a deficit of workers in Australia to match the speed at which new hotels are opening?!

According to Hospitality Magazine the industry will need as many as 123,000 workers to meet a growth of over three million new tourists by 2020.  The result will be more permanent and temporary residents in Australia.

A second contributor of tourism is the ‘staycation’ trend where travelers work for accommodations while touring the country. This kind of tourism is met with a government issued visa that requires transience from one city to the next in order to remain in the country.
