Northern TerritoryAs per new data from the National Visitor Survey, it is a positive trend for the NT tourism industry, with a 12 per cent recorded rise in interstate visitors and a six per cent increase in spending over the past three years.

 
An International Visitor Survey released earlier this month found that a record $41.2 billion was spent by more than eight million international visitors throughout Australia.

 
Ethical Adventures NT part-owner and operator Robert Woods said, “We’ve consistently had a 20 to 30 per cent increase year-to-year during the peak period,” he said. As a small operator, Mr. Woods said that most of their company’s bookings were coming in from direct referrals. Mr. Woods said that interstate visitors are his main customers.

 
Co-owner of Adelaide River Tours Kelly Jilicher also said that they had an excellent first year of trading after recently buying the business. Ms. Jilicher said that they had an increase in interstate travellers this year, especially the older tourists.

 
The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory also saw a rise in visitations for 2016-17.
