Published on : Wednesday, June 26, 2019

International visitors spent U.S. dollars 11 billion in New South Wales (NSW) according to the latest International Visitor Survey (IVS). In the year ending March 2019, NSW welcomed 50.9 per cent of all international visitors to Australia as per Stuart Ayres, Minister for Jobs, Investment, Tourism and Western Sydney.

 

 

 

 

He said that NSW leads Victoria and Queensland across the three major metrics – visitation, bed nights and expenditure – reinforcing our position as the number one spot for tourists to visit.

 

 

 

 

Sydney alone received 4.1 million international visitors, who stayed 82.3 million nights and spent over U.S. dollars 10.1 billion. This phenomenal achievement puts them well ahead of Melbourne and Brisbane.

 

 

 

 

NSW remains the top destination for ten of the top fifteen source markets to Australia, namely China, USA, United Kingdom, Korea, Hong Kong, Germany, Canada, France and Indonesia.

 

 

 

 

Regional NSW received 868,800 international visitors in the year ending March 2019, who stayed 15.1 million nights in the State’s rural centres.

 

 

 

 

The number of visitors, bed nights and expenditure to the state increased by 15.6 per cent from the last survey. This confirms that the word is spreading about the unique experiences that guests can enjoy in areas such as the Central Coast, South Coast and Hunter region.
