The latest research from Roy Morgan shows that over 11.9 million Australians aged 14+ (58.3%) are planning on spending at least one night on their next trip in a domestic destination in Australia. Melbourne has consistently been the most popular domestic holiday location over the last decade, and over 1.5 million Australians currently intend to stay at least one night in Melbourne during their next trip. Sydney is a clear second place with nearly 900,000 Australians intending to stay in the NSW capital for at least one night on their next trip. Following in popularity is the NSW North Coast, with over 550,000 Australians intending to stay for at least one night on their next trip in this region. Analysis of Australia’s leading holiday destinations using Roy Morgan’s Helix Personas consumer segmentation and data integration tool shows that Melbourne and Sydney are the most popular holiday destinations regardless of which Helix Community is considered. However, beyond the two leaders the choices and preferences of the different Helix Communities diverge considerably.
