Domestic visitors spend $4.6bn in WA

Domestic tourists spent $4.6 billion while visiting Western Australia in the year to September, which was 12 per cent more than the previous year and three times the average increase nationally.

Released today, the quarterly results from Tourism Research Australia's National Visitor Survey showed 7.2 million people from around Australia, including those living in WA, travelled to and within the state in the 12 months to September.

According to Tourism Council WA chief executive Evan Hall, the 7 per cent increase in domestic overnight visitors was driven by the state government’s investment in regional tourism marketing.
