  • Almost 238,800 overseas visitors arrived on holiday in WA in the year ending June 2010. The top five countries of origin were the United Kingdom (19%), Singapore (18%), Malaysia (13%), Japan (6%) and New Zealand (5%). A further 4% of overseas visitors were from Germany and Indonesia.
  • Just over 54,000 tourists arrived in the September quarter 2010, an increase of 4.5% from the same quarter of the previous year. The rise was driven mainly by increasing numbers of visitors from North East and South East Asia. Malaysian tourists showed the largest increase, with 27% more tourists from that country than in the same quarter of the previous year.
  • In the September quarter 2010, South East Asian countries, most notably Malaysia (17%) and Singapore (16%), accounted for 42% of all visitors.
  • The September quarter saw a decline in the numbers visiting from Europe, Africa and the Americas. Visitors from the United Kingdom accounted for most of this decline, down 16% compared with the September quarter 2009.
