As the owner of Bridgewater Terraces, I simply love welcoming guests to our holiday apartments – and thankfully, it seems that this is only going to continue. Brisbane tourism is booming and every year we are fortunate enough to welcome more and more visitors to the city.
Continue reading this article as I put forth some statistics regarding tourism in the city and why it is such a wonderful holiday destination. And of course, I’ll also touch up on why you should book your Brisbane accommodation with us for your upcoming holiday.
Brisbane tourism is enjoying a boom
It may not come as a surprise, but Brisbane is one of Australia’s most popular tourist destinations. With high rise architecture, the sprawling Brisbane River and lush green spaces, Brisbane is also counted amongst the most beautiful cities worldwide. However, I was extremely pleased at seeing the boom in Brisbane tourism last year.
As a Brisbane accommodation provider, I certainly saw a rise in the number of tourists we received. And the latest statistics have confirmed this to be true. According to the National Visitor Survey released by Tourism Research Australia, Brisbane tourism demonstrated record growth last year. In 2015, the overnight visitor expenditure in Brisbane was up by 12.4% from the previous year and totalled a massive $3.6 billion. Moreover, Brisbane drew in about 5.8 million visitors during the year, which was up 11.4% from the previous year. Brisbane also exhibited a rise of 3.6% with 17.6 million visitor nights being spent in the city. The year of 2015 saw a healthy mix of tourists in Brisbane, consisting of holidaymakers, business travellers and of course, visitors, friends and relatives of people in the city.
These statistics have simply made my day! Not only am I thrilled that Brisbane tourism is enjoying a high, but as a local accommodation provider, this also means better business for me!
