SC Tourism cheers for Xmas 2022

FESTIVE season holidays across Queensland are on track to deliver more than $3 billion to tourism operators and the State’s visitor economy.

From 10 December to 9 January, Queensland and interstate holidaymakers generated 15 million visitor nights, up almost 2.5 per cent on the 2021 festive season. “This initial Christmas school holiday data shows Queensland’s domestic tourism recovery remains strong, on track and nation-leading,” Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said.

“In more great news for Queensland jobs and tourism operators, this festive season’s more than $3 billion holiday spend will continue to grow ahead of Australia Day.  The Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Whitsundays were the most popular destinations.

It’s predicted the total number of visitors traveling to Queensland’s world-class destinations will be more than 1.5 million.
