The latest figures from the Roy Morgan Holiday Tracking Survey show that the average cost per night of a domestic holiday is $A151 per person. However, many of Australia’s famed coastal destinations come in well below that. Topping the list for affordability is World Heritage-listed Fraser Island in Queensland, which costs on average $A94 per person per night. In contrast, Port Douglas (averaging $245 per person per night) and the Whitsunday Islands ($A220) in Queensland are among the nation’s costliest coastal destinations. In New South Wales, the North Coast heads that state’s list for affordable coastal holiday spots, at an average of $A120 per person per night, while Lord Howe Island is more suited to higher-end travellers, at an average cost of $A341 per person per night.
