A study by Anne Wild and Associates, a travel and lifestyle communications agency, revealed that 69 per cent of Australians were keen to head abroad as soon as they could.
However, 76 per cent of those respondents are keen to travel domestically, with 34 per cent wanting to head to Queensland, 31 per cent want to go to New South Wales and 11 per cent to Tasmania. 10 per cent of those surveyed want to head to Victoria and Western Australia, and four per cent to The Northern Territory.
Anne Wild, Managing Director of AWA, said: "The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly impacted the global travel and tourism industry like no issue before it. While most Australians are just starting to emerge from lockdown, we are explorers by nature and through this survey we wanted to see if our intrinsic sense of wanderlust had wavered as a result of the pandemic. We hope the survey results will help shed light on what Australians are thinking in terms of their future travel plans to assist our valued tourism clients and industry contacts in their preparations for re-opening following the resumption of travel."
