The value of exports to Canada has increased from $3.7m in 2010–11 to $7.3m in 2011–12 to $9.1m in 2012–13 bringing it into the top seven export destinations. In recent years, the value of exports to the United Arab Emirates has fluctuated from a peak of $79.7m in 2009–10 to $6.4m in 2010–11 to $8.8m in 2012–13. Increases can be seen in the value of goods exported to the United Kingdom (from $12.5m in 2011–12 to $14.5m in 2012–13), Japan (from $7.8m to $8.3m) and Germany ($7.2m to $8.3m).

These fluctuations in the value of exports of sport and physical recreation goods may be a result of relatively large value items such as boats and horses included in the data. Relatively small fluctuations in the volume of exports of these goods can have a relatively large impact on the value of exports to an individual country.
