Figures released by Tourism Research Australia reinforce the north coast as a popular holiday destination for Australian holidaymakers.

The National Visitor Survey reveals just over 5 million people visited locations in the Richmond electorate in the 12 months to the end of September this year, an increase of 11% on the previous 12 months and 15% increase over 3 years.

The Nationals Duty Senator for Richmond John Williams said the visitation was a massive boost to the  economy.

He said it is estimated the holidaymakers spent $2.775 billion or an average $546 per head. 

This was a 12% increase on the preceding year and 14% increase over three years.

Senator Williams said it is good to see more Australians preferring to holiday at home because it helps create more jobs.
