The Gold Coast continues to receive thousands of international visitors coming from all points of the globe. Being a prime holiday destination, the Gold Coast promises an unforgettable travel experience for solo travellers, couples, friends, and most especially, families. Aside from first-class beaches and endless list of unique attractions, the Gold Coast boasts perfect weather and some of the world’s greatest holiday accommodation.
Based on the report released by Travel Queensland, the Gold Coast welcomed a total of 792,000 international visitors in the year ending December 2013; a 6.8% jump compared to data gathered in 2012. Of this number, 186,000 visitors came from China, which represent an impressive 18.9% increase compared to the previous year. This is partly because China recently launched direct Beijing to Queensland flight and because Chinese finds Australia as a safe travel destination when compared to other Asian countries.
In addition to the strong results from China, travel from UK and New Zealand to Queensland also improved significantly posting a 16.8% and 4.5% increase respectively. Visitors from Singapore also increased by 11% due to the introduction of direct flights to the Gold Coast from Scoot airlines.
