Tourism Australia is depending much on the India-Pakistan cricket tournament at the ICC T20 World Cup scheduled in October in Melbourne to attracttourists from India. The World Cup will be held in Australia in the months of October and November.

India was the second-biggest tourist market for Australia after New Zealand in May, which is the top Indian summer breaktime. After the subsiding of the pandemic,Australia opened its borders again in February.

Brent Anderson, Tourism Australia’s regional general manager for Southeast Asia, said that Australia is hoping to witness 400,000 visitors by June next year, similarto the pre-Covid level. With the closure of China, India has turned out to be more significant. By 2030, India is expected to become No. 1 tourist market for Australia, said Anderson.

Throughout the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup, Australia witnessed 10,000 individuals travel to Australia from India.

Hence, the country expects 18,000-20,000 Indians to travel during this year.
