Tourism in Australia
Australia's spectacular natural environment, multicultural communities, excellent food and wine, its weather and lifestyle and the friendliness and openness of its people make it one of the world's most attractive tourist destinations.
It's no surprise, then, that over 6 million people visited Australia from abroad in the last year, staying a total of 236 million nights and spending over $33 billion (2015, according to Tourism Research Australia).
