According to new booking data, a city is set to be the hot spot for Aussie and overseas tourists this year.

Online travel agency Trip.com has revealed to news.com.au that bookings have already been made for travellers from January 1 to the 31st of December for this year to this one destination.

It’s Perth.

The West Australian capital has the most hotels pre-booked in 2020 by Australians, which puts it well ahead of usual favourites Sydney, the Gold Coast and Melbourne.

Perth is also the number one spot for international visitors booking hotels in Australia. They’re heading to Perth, then Adelaide and then the Gold Coast, according to the data.

One spot in particular is catching the attention of Aussies and overseas travellers alike, as there are some cute and cuddly animals on the island.

Rottnest Island, home of the quokka, has tourists heading to Perth in droves.

 

“Perth has really come of age, we have a vast area of either brand new or refurbished hotels and are very competitive on price,” Destination Perth CEO Tracey Cinavas-Prosser said in a statement.
