Tourism’srevival on the Gold Coast in progress

 Wednesday, September 28, 2022 


New tourism numbers released shows that the tourism sector’s revival on the Gold Coast is positive and truly in progress.

The figures, released in accordance with the World Tourism Day, show that more holiday-goers are traveling to the glitter strip and spending further.

In the 12 months to June, Gold Coast welcomed 3.2 million domestic overnight visitors who expended $3.3 billion, going up compared to the year before, with total nights witnessing a surge of 3.5 percent to 11.8 million nights.

For local businesses, visitor expenditure has also increased to more than $1000 per head.

Destination Gold Coast CEO Patricia O’Callaghan said that this growth in expenditure per visitor across Australia means that total holiday spending for the Gold Coast in the June quarter went up 29 per cent.
With international borders reopening in February, the Gold Coast greeted 87,000 worldwide visitors majorly from the UK, New Zealand and Singapore.

Ms. O’Callaghan added that this same time last year, the Gold Coast was on course to lose $1 billion in the September quarter in the wake of the pandemic; however, in current times, domestic capacity has been essentially reestablished with global markets slowly coming back to the region.

The school holiday period turned to be a massive success for Gold Coast, with thousands of families flocking to the coast to take pleasure in the sunshine.
