The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Thailand, Indonesia and the U.S.A. remain the most popular destinations for holidaying Australians who continue to travel abroad in record numbers.

And, while Thailand, Indonesia and the U.S.A. grew in popularity over the past 12 months, New Zealand remains the most preferred destination for outbound Australians.

Precipitated by a strong Australian dollar, a record 8 million Australian took an overseas trip in 2012, an increase of 8% over 2011.

Sean Thompson of the Australian Bureau of Statistics interpreted the record number of his fellow country traveling, explaining, "This meant that an extra 6,000 Australians per day decided to take a trip overseas compared to just three years earlier."

The number of Australians visiting the top five favorites overseas destination during the past year were:

  • New Zealand (1.1 million)
  • Indonesia (910,000) up 13%
  • U.S.A. (819,000) up 9%
  • Thailand (600,000) up 23%
  • Britain (487,000)
The role of the stronger Australian dollar cannot be overestimated as a factor in more foreign travel by Australians. In 2008-2009 the Australian dollar traded at US$0.75 but traded at US$1.03 last year.

Over that same period travel to Indonesia by Australian has doubled.

These figures were published in a report published in late April 2013 by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
