WA visitor expenditure reaches $9.3b

WA recorded a 10 per cent jump in overall visitor numbers, an eight per cent increase in visitor nights and a seven per cent rise in visitor spending in the year ending March 2016, helping to drive the value of tourism in the State to $9.3 billion, according to Tourism Research Australia (TRA).

The $9.3 billion visitor spend – almost half of which ($4.3 billion) was spent in regional WA – means the industry is on track to reach the State Government Tourism Strategy’s goal of $12 billion by 2020.
