Tip of the Week

Tourism in Australia grew rapidly in the late 20th century, and it now represents one of the most dynamic sectors in the Australian economy, accounting almost 500,000 jobs. Australia had 5.2 million visitors in 2006, and they spent $23 billion. The strong growth in tourism has boosted the development of attractions in each state and territory—amusement and theme parks, zoos, art galleries and museums, certain mines and factories, national parks, historic sites, and wineries. Some of the most popular attractions are Queensland´s spectacular Great Barrier Reef, the theme parks on Queensland's Gold Coast, the Northern Territory´s Kakadu National Park, and the famous beach resorts in the Brisbane, Cairns, and Sydney regions.
