Inspiring Holidays dissects the findings of recent ABS data on international travel from Australia.
As soon as the announcement was made in 2021 that international and national borders would finally reopen for travel, Australians immediately started booking exciting excursions, says Inspiring Vacations. From historical Egypt tours and treks across Thailand to tours to Cape York and everything in between, it seems like every corner of the earth will be filled with Aussie tourists throughout 2022 – but which destinations were the most popular for Australian travellers?
