On Land on shore, averaging A$569 each, compared to domestic travelers who spent A$436 per day. •

In a transit port, international visitors each spent an average of A$211 per day on shore, while domestic travelers spent A$174 per day.

Cruise ship crew members each spent an average of A$173 per day while in port, making a combined expenditure of A$35 million.

Cruise lines contributed direct expenditure of almost A$1.1 billion— an increase of 4.6% on the previous year—spent on items including fuel,

food and beverage supplies, port charges and fees, and administration. •

The state of New South Wales received the greatest share of direct expenditure from the cruise industry, with A$1.55 billion, including A$1.54 billion in the key gateway port of Sydney.

Among other states, Queensland received direct expenditures of A$490 million, followed by Victoria (A$168 million), Western Australia (A$109 million), South Australia (A$67 million), Tasmania (A$49 million) and the Northern Territory (A$31 million).

The cruise industry defied current berthing constraints in Sydney to achieve a high rate of growth in its national economic contribution, told Katz. “A lack of available berthing space in Sydney has made it difficult for the cruise industry to increase its capacity in Australia, but this has been countered by significant increases in the amount of spending by cruise passengers,” he said. “In the future we look forward to achieving a solution to Sydney’s infrastructure constraints, while at the same time benefitting from investment in other ports such as Brisbane, Cairns, Broome and Eden which are improving their ability to welcome cruise ships.
