A Roy Morgan Single Source survey, which was carried out in the year to September 2017, has found that more than 14.8 million Australians aged 14+ would like to spend a holiday within Australia in the next two years. This figure is virtually unchanged from a year ago, when 14.9 million Australians indicated a desire to take an Australian holiday, but down slightly from a peak of over 15.2 million in September 2015. The Roy Morgan Holiday Tracking Survey shows that over the last two years Melbourne has retained top spot as the capital city Australians would most like to visit. In 2017, over 4.25 million Australians indicated that they would like to visit Melbourne, down slightly from 4.5 million in 2015. Sydney is again comfortably in second position with just under 2.4 million would-be visitors in 2017, down slightly from 2.5 million in 2015. Meanwhile, Hobart has experienced the fastest growth of any capital city and is now in third place for domestic holiday-goers with 1.75 million prospective visitors, up 8.7% from 1.6 million in 2015.
