The latest Roy Morgan Holiday Tracking Survey has found that 11.6 million Australians aged 14+ reported in 2017 that they would like to spend a holiday within Australia in the next two years. Some 3,779,000 Australians intended to take a holiday to Victoria in the next two years (up 55,000), beating New South Wales at 3,624,000 (down 274,000 from 2015). Tasmania was the only state other than Victoria that experienced tourism growth on 2015 figures, up from 515,000 in 2015 to 542,000 in 2017. Meanwhile, Melbourne has retained top spot as the capital city Australians would most like to visit, a position the southern capital has now held for well over a decade. In 2017, some 1,558,000 Australians indicated that they would like to visit Melbourne, up slightly from 1,526,000 in 2015. Sydney is comfortably in second position with 877,000 would-be visitors in 2017, down from 913,000 in 2015, while Brisbane and Adelaide have increased in tourism intention over the last two years.
