  • Of the 625,000 Western Australian residents holidaying abroad in 2009-10, about two-thirds travelled to nearby South-East Asian countries. The top destinations were Indonesia (42%), Thailand (10%), Malaysia (7%) and Singapore (6%). The United Kingdom and New Zealand were also popular destinations, each accounting for between 5% and 6% of holiday departures overseas.
  • In the September quarter 2010, around 198,000 residents left WA for overseas holidays, 19% more than in the same quarter of 2009.
  • In the year to September 2010, Oceania was the only region to record a decline as a favoured holiday destination, largely due to less departures to New Zealand.
  • The popularity of Indonesia as a holiday destination among Western Australians continued to rise, with about 84,800 resident departures to that country in the September quarter 2010. These accounted for 43% of all resident departures. Thailand was the second most popular destination, attracting just over 9% of all WA residents holidaying overseas.
