Holiday demand peaks as interstate visitors eye off tourist hot spots
Interstate travellers have snapped up bookings to some of Queensland’s most prized tourism hot spots.
Northern Queensland has been hot property since the state government announced borders will re-open on December 17.
Tourism Whitsundays CEO Rick Hamilton said it’s been “overwhelming and positive” since the release of the roadmap.
Reservations for Hamilton Island are already fully-booked for October and holiday demand among vacationers from NSW has spiked toward the end of the year and into 2022.
He said they had heard a similar story out of Hayman Island.
“Usually in the January-late January period, you see things dropping off because it gets a little warm and humid up here … at the moment we are sitting at full booking at 50-60 per cent which is great.”
