SHORT-TERM OVERSEAS ARRIVALS ON HOLIDAY

In the June quarter 2007, there were 50,342 overseas visitors flying into Western Australia on holiday, 13.7% (6,083) more than in the same period of 2006. Much of the growth can be attributed to more holidaymakers from Singapore (up 40.3% or 3,946), Malaysia (up 26.4% or 1,214) and Japan (up 10.2% or 418). However, there were significantly less holidaymakers from the United States of America (down 36.3% or 478).
