NT tourism down in spite of big hopes for this year

 Tuesday, June 6, 2023 


What expected to be the top visitor time in Darwin, in a year, operators expected that tourism would carry on its rebound, David Woodrow is dropping retreats for his Darwin Harbour sunset cruise trade. 

Mr. Woodrow said that prior to the pandemic, they were operating lunch cruises three or four times every week. However, currently, they are running them just once a week.

Mr. Woodrow, who functioned the well-liked tourism trade for a decade, has appointed less staff, who
wouldn’t get as many shifts routinely.

Mr. Woodrow’s business plummeted around 25 per cent, months after the sector declared a pioneering
year in 2022 with visitor expenditure surging $3.1 billion.

He said that they are at the peak and it is not going to become better as he anticipates. 

In the Top End of Australia, throughout the dry period, tourism movement reaches the high between May and October and then drops considerably all through the monsoonal drizzly time.

Greg Ireland, NT Chamber of Commerce first in command said that this time is very important for
trades to hoard funds aside for the subsequent wet season.
