Tourism boost

One of the big "mega-trends" of the past decade and the next: Chinese tourism into Australia.

We've been well used to visitors in the capital cities for many years, of course.

But interestingly we are now seeing tourists all over the country.

This panoramic is Tambourine Mountain, looking down over towards the Gold Coast, where coach-loads of tourists were to be found.

But I might just as well have uploaded a picture of the Blue Mountains to the west of Sydney, the Gold Coast itself, Hobart and Tasmania, or the south coast of New South Wales. 

Or almost anywhere.

The lower dollar she help to drive this trend forward further, benefiting tourism regions in particular.
