NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Adam Marshall, this week announced NSW has made Australian tourism history, setting several new national records and a series of NSW all-time records for overseas visitation.
Mr Marshall said no other State has ever achieved such strong results in an International Visitor Survey, with NSW welcoming just over four million overseas visitors, who spent $10.1 billion in the State, in the year ending June 2017.
“This momentous achievement is a credit to the strength of our tourism strategies, the quality of our tourism industry and our ability to attract and secure major events,” Mr Marshall said.
“We will continue to focus on driving international visitation into Sydney and out to rural and regional NSW communities, putting tourism dollars into local economies, generating jobs and driving investment in the regions.”
