Research by Roy Morgan indicates that in the year to March 2018, Australians went out for food and drink nearly 1.35 billion times at cafes, restaurants, fast food outlets and pubs – or an average of 66 times each by every Australian aged 14+. This represents an increase of an average of two trips per Australians since last analysed in September 2016. The other big increase over the period was Australians playing video, computer or board games at home. In the last 12 months an Australian played a video, computer or board game at home a total of 704 million times – up a total of 43 million since the year to September 2016. Roy Morgan CEO Michele Levine notes that while it recently reported that Australians are spending more time online, popular sporting and leisure activities continue to increase, led by Australians heading out for a bite to eat or a social drink.
