After New Zealand and the U.S.A., Indonesia ranks third as the most preferred holiday destination for Australians in 2009.
6.3 million Australians traveled abroad on holiday last year with 548,000 coming to Indonesia, the majority of whom visited Bali.
The continuing strong demand for travel by Australians was bolstered by a strong national economy, essentially unscathed in the current world economic crisis.
Inbound tourism to Australia remained largely stable, counting 5.6 million visitors to Australia in 2009. For only the second time in two decades, Australia experienced a tourism deficit with more Australians traveling overseas than the number of inbound international visitors.
