A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that over 12 million Australians aged 14+ (59%) intend to visit a domestic holiday destination and stay at least one night on their next trip. Melbourne is again the leading holiday destination, with over 1.5 million Australians intending to stay for at least one night in the Victorian capital on their next trip. It is followed by Sydney (880,000) and Brisbane (over 570,000). Other popular domestic holiday destinations include the Great Ocean Road (522,000), the North Coast of New South Wales (521,000) and the Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and Gloucester region (437,000). Analysis using Roy Morgan’s Helix Personas consumer segmentation and data integration tool shows that Aspirationals are more likely to choose Melbourne as a domestic holiday destination than other Helix Personas Communities whereas Australians in the Hearth & Home Community are more likely than other communities to choose Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.
