SATIC Tourism Barometer top line graph - March qtr 2016

The SATIC Tourism Barometer continued its positive run with the activity index and outlook index for the March 2016 quarter both well above the mid-point of 100 at 123 points each.

The result was supported by a strong events season which saw the return of the Women’s Australian Open Golf, record attendances at the Adelaide Fringe Festival, WOMAdelaide, international cricket and soccer, Clipsal 500 and the Australian and Asian Dragon Boat Championships. Easter also fell in March this year increasing travel demand in the quarter.

Data from Tourism Research Australia for the calendar year 2015 showed strong growth with interstate visitors up 14% from the previous year and international visitors up by 10% to a record 408,000. Intrastate demand was also up by 6%. The lower dollar and political instability overseas were said to be supporting domestic travel although the number of Australians travelling overseas still continues to rise.
