Australians from NSW and the ACT take first place when it comes to travelling overseas, whereas Queenslanders are the keenest on domestic trips, according to new research from global online travel booking platform agoda.

The Travel and Tech Study found those in NSW and ACT took an average of 4.8 trips in the last 12 months, Victorians and Western Australians were the least frequent travellers, with an average of 3.3 trips apiece.

When it came to overseas travel, NSW/ACT and Western Australia led the pack with 1.8 and 1.6 foreign holidays respectively in the last 12 months. Victorians and South Australians are inclined to stay put, with an average of only 1.0 foreign trips in the last 12 months.

Queenslanders are the most avid travellers in their own backyard, with an average 3.3 domestic trips in the last 12 months.

Despite boasting the most landmass and the many delights of the Margaret River wine region, Western Australians only averaged 1.7 domestic trips, potentially due to the relative isolation of the state and long distance to other capital cities.

Compared to their fellow Asia-Pacific travellers, Aussies travel less frequently than Malaysians and the Filipinos (5.0 and 5.6 average trips per year). Rather, they’re on par (4.1) with Singaporean travellers, who average 4.2 trips.

In regards to overseas travel, the study found that Singapore beats out Aussies in frequency of foreign trips.

Blessed with the geographical luxury of being so close to neighbouring countries, Singaporeans travel abroad an average 3.1 times a year, compared to 1.4 times a year for Australians.

The award for the most avid travellers overall in APAC goes to Thailand, with an average of 6.8 trips per year, including 5.1 domestic and 1.7 overseas trips.

Andrew Edwards, global director for brand and communications at agoda, said: “Aussies have a global reputation for being well travelled, but it’s interesting to see they are travelling more at home than anywhere else.”
