The Roy Morgan Research Institute has released statistics showing that Melbourne is Australia’s most haunted destination, with Sydney in second place.
According to the study, in 2006 more than 13.2 million Australians over 14 years of age admitted they would like to spend their holiday in Australia in the next two years, by 2016 the figure would touch 14.8 million. Victoria has more than 4.2 million supporters – up 33% over the past decade.
Norman Morris, director of communications at the Roy Morgan Institute, said that Melbourne’s continued rise in popularity has cemented the city’s “power” appeal, sporting events and blockbuster art exhibitions and shopping. , Eating and nightlife is full of attractions, as well as the opportunity to travel in the day many … indeed Melbourne is a dream destination for everyone.
Not surprisingly, Sydney ranks at No. 2. However, this ranking makes the two states New South Wales and Victoria are always formidable opponents. According to the survey, the number of people choosing Sydney increased but not too high, from 1.9 million to 2.4 million people, enough to maintain the No. 2 position.
Meanwhile, Perth seems to have lost the charm of domestic tourists, slipping from 1.7 million visitors are likely to visit to 1.5 million in the past 10 years. Brisbane and Hobart, both from 1.4 to 1.8 million, seem to have stripped Perth of Perth’s “best west coast.”
This raises the question of why the state capital of Western Australia is losing its appeal. Over the past 10 years, the Museum of Modern and Modern Art (MONA) has made Hobart’s Tasmanian mark more distinctly, while the culinary culture developed in Brisbane has been much more vigorous in Brisbane than in previous years. Perth’s glitter seems to fade as a result of the mining downturn, along with popular Western Australia destinations such as Broome and the Margaret River, which have been less popular in the past decade.
