HotelsCombined yesterday released figures showing the average value of hotel bookings in Australia fell over winter in all capital cities except Sydney.
Adelaide posted a 20% decline, Perth dropped 17% and Brisbane following at 13%. Melbourne and Canberra both experienced 11% declines. Sydney bucked the trend with a 3% increase.
The results reflect the changing preferences of Australian travellers, with many regional cities falling out of the top 100 destinations and US and Europe occupying higher positions.
