Australian Tourism now Targeting Older Travellers

Australia is one of the biggest and most popular backpacking hotspots in the world, thousands of young people head there every year, to explore and have an adventure. Most visit the popular tourist attractions, enjoy the beach, surf, backpack, explore Australia’s vast wildlife and enjoy the amazing nightlife.

However, the Australian Tourism Board are obviously unsatisfied by monopolising the travel plans of the under 30s, and now they are launching a new campaign to target the older traveller. The new marketing strategy, worth one million pounds, involves a television advert as well as other advertising, which depicts some of the most popular and beautiful destinations in Australia, and shows the country in a more mature light.

Australia is not simply a place for the young to backpack and party, it is a luxury destination which can provide an amazing holiday for the over 50s market.

In recent years the over 50s market has been increasing and evolving, as more older travellers embark on longer and more exotic holidays every year. The Australian Tourism Board are obviously trying to tap into this important demographic, to lure older travellers with more disposable income, to their shores.
