Not as much as "Indonesia", where Aussie tourism is pretty much limited to the island of Bali

And why not? No surprises NZ is No 1 on this list. So many connections with the 'West Island'.

Yes, I believe Akula is a kiwi. The subject of their second sentence is New Zealand, they're referring to Australia as the "West Island".

As an Australian, I can tell you Fiji is not swamped by Aussies because of our low population

344,700 trips a year to a country with a population of less than a million is pretty significant

Thats for the whole year though. You're not going to get that many in Fiji at any given time

344,700 / 365 = 944.4 Australian tourists a day

@limewell Correct (for the mean number of Aussie tourists per day), assuming that the year in question is not a leap year.

Try going to majorca in summer. 1.2 million population, 14 million foreign tourists. And dont even mention the mainland spanish.

Still, a thousand aussies in a country with less than a million people, thats about .1% at any given time.

Doesn't sound like much on paper but trust me, they'll make sure you know they're there. Once you adjust the stats for loud obnoxiousness per capita, you'll find that the visitor to resident ratio almost reaches parity.

There's about 100,000 Fijians resident in Australia so a lot of this would be expats visiting family back home.

It's got nothing to do with the Australian population though - It's relative to the population of Fiji.

I'm not so sure about that, you only need to look at Hollywood. It is swarming with aussies; Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Judy Davis, Russell Crown, Mel Gibson, Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman, Rose Byrne, Toni Collette, the Hemsworths...

Not really. Australians are generally more conditioned to travelling for long distances. Combine that with family/cultural ties and the convenience of holidaying in a country where the English language prevails.

I'm surprised that the UAE doesn't feature given its international flight hub status

The UK only has the Pitcairn Islands and Chagos Islands that are close to Australia, and both are very difficult to travel to. The USA has American Samoa, which doesn't seem like it would be very popular, considering Samoa, Tonga, Vanuatu, etc, don't make it. I think a lot of Australians do travel to Hawaii, which of course is part of the US.

To shukka who says the US is swarming with Aussies, I say I'm glad they're here. Just take back Rupert Murdoch. And maybe Mel Gibson besides.

I was surprised that Papua New Guinea isn't on there since it's practically swimming distance from Australia, but looking it up it appears that PNG doesn't have a whole lot in the way of a tourist industry.

Dec 25, 2020
Yeah me too. Ive met many Aussies in Canada and i thought that since they're culturally more or less similar and they're both English speaking, it would be on the list. Im guessing the distance is a limiting factor. Most of the other countries on this list are close to Australia

I'll bet it's skewed toward the Pacific coast, and Hawaii, Los Angeles and San Francisco are just much more popular than Vancouver. Not taking anything away from Canada's charms, but those are worldwide hotspots for tourism.
