Australia's Gold Coast prepares for record arrivals from the Middle East

Australia's Gold Coast is expected to receive an influx of travellers from the Middle East due to the Australian Dollar declining to a level 30% cheaper than the previous summer. The number of Middle East travellers to Gold Coast increased by 20% last year itself, with the rapid growth of the leisure sector. The average leisure spend also increased by 63%, benefiting the economy by A$ 523 million - an increase of 59% over the previous year. Figures are expected to rise further, with the decline of the Aussie Dollar.
