Living large: Industry revenue has grown due to rising tourism from overseas

Significant increases in inbound tourism have supported operators in the Luxury Hotels industry over the past five years. Rising numbers of international visitors to Australia have boosted demand for luxury hotels, which has stimulated industry growth over the five-year period. The depreciation of the Australian dollar over the past five years has made it cheaper for overseas travellers to visit Australia, and the expanding middle classes in several Asian countries have supported rising inbound tourism. In particular, inbound Chinese tourists have driven growth in tourism expenditure, outpacing other markets such as the United States, United Kingdom and New Zealand over the period. Industry revenue is expected to grow at an annualised 2.9% over the five years through 2017-18, to $ more.
