Australasia encompasses Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and a range of South Pacific islands including the archipelago of Fiji and the numerous Cook Islands. Outbound tourism from this region is led by Australia and New Zealand, the most economically advanced nations, which between them represent three quarters of Australasia’s population. In these two countries, overseas travel has become an important component, both for leisure and business purposes, and an affordable luxury within reach of all ages and lifestyle groups. This report focuses on these two main outbound markets.
