In this week’s exclusive Blue Swan Daily Infographic, we take a closer look at Australia’s booming tourism market by analysing visitor arrivals to the country. For the year ending Jul-2018, Australia added an additional 6.1% or 511,700 visitors totalling 9.1 million. The top ten countries have remained the same, however Malaysia has overtaken India to become the seventh highest inbound tourism market. China (10.6%), India (19.4%) and Hong Kong (15.5%) were the only countries in the top 10 to see double digit visitor share growth.
