Aussies break tourism record
More than one million Australian tourists visited New Zealand in the past year.
Prime Minister and Minister of Tourism, John Key says that proves the wisdom of recent Government investment into the Australian market.
Statistics New Zealand figures released today show that 1,001,880 visitors arrived from Australia in the year to May, the first time more than a million visitors arrived from Australia in a 12 month period.
Tourism New Zealand today launched a promotional campaign to celebrate the one millionth visitor. The ‘Thanks a Million’ campaign will see two people win a millionaire’s holiday to New Zealand.
