Tourists spend more in WA

The number of international visitors to Western Australia each year has surpassed 800,000, with the state again recording the highest average trip expenditure per visitor for the country.

While the number of visitors is still well below that of New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, which each recorded more than 2 million overseas tourists, international visitors to WA spent more per person during their trip than any other state.

According to Tourism Research Australia’s International Visitor Survey, 807,000 international visitors spent $2.3 billion in WA over the 12 months to September.

That's because it's so expensive here

Not necessarily a good thing and possibly the reason for low tourist numbers - way too expensive.
