Western Australia recorded a decline in the number of holiday-makers arriving from overseas in the December quarter 2007. During this period there were 7,766 (8.8%) less overseas visitors to Western Australia than the corresponding quarter of 2006. Much of the decline can be attributed to less holidaymakers from United Kingdom and Ireland (down 6,919 or 23.9%), Japan (down 1,650 or 21.0%) and Malaysia (down 1,002 or 15.5%). However, there were significantly more holiday travellers from Thailand (up 793 or 70.7%), South Africa (up 419 or 22.1%) and New Zealand (up 217 or 5.8%).


There were 21,763 (25.1%) more Western Australians holidaying overseas in the December quarter 2007, compared to the same period of 2006. Overseas destinations that recorded the largest influx of Western Australian holiday travellers were Indonesia (up 9,779 or 60.6%), Singapore (up 3,883 or 50.1%) and Thailand (up 2,559 or 19.0%). There were, however, less Western Australians holidaying in New Zealand (down 988 or 11.1%) and Malaysia (down 525 or 7.2%) over the same period.
