The tourism industry makes the most contributions to the nation’s economy. It creates a large value to Australia’s goods and service.

Dr Vicki Peel, Monash university Senior Tourism Lecturer said, “It has been an absolutely growth in a particular for Australia despite the fact of the falling high Australia dollar.”
Australians prefer spend holidays locally rather than go overseas. They are willing to choose places such as Great Ocean Road or Gippsland, said Dr. Peel.
The foreign currency also contributes to the economy.
When the Australian dollar drops, it attracts Europeans and Americans come to the country for a long travel, said Dr Peel.
“Tourists coming in here, but they’re bringing foreign cash with them, we earn about 26 billion dollars worth foreign exchange a year,” said Matt Hingerty, Australian Tourism and Export Council CEO.
Holiday workers always come back to Australia for education or relationship. These people usually benefit the Australian economy in a long-term period, said Dr Peel.
CEO Hingerty said, making innovations for attracting tourists can increase Australia’s economy.
Australia can invest more tourists and focus more on international tourists markets such as China and India.
