Visitors to New Zealand from Australia reached a record high in July 2009, delivering nearly 16,000 more travellers from across the Tasman than the same month last year.

The Australian market has grown by an additional 55,000 visitors in the last 12 months.

Overall arrivals were up 0.3% in July compared with the same month last year.

Statistics also show some easing of the concerns about Swine Flu (H1N1) on Asian markets. Though arrivals are still down, the impact of Swine Flu on arrivals from Japan, China and Korea appears to be less severe than was evident in the June figures.

"While it is still early days, our offshore markets are reporting that bookings from Asian markets are picking up from October onwards, particularly in Japan, and we hope that trend will continue as we head into summer," said George Hickton, Tourism New Zealand Chief Executive.

Arrivals from Germany have picked up well, up 14% on the same month last year. In June, Germany overtook Korea as New Zealand’s sixth largest market for visitor arrivals.

"The softening in demand from some northern hemisphere markets has also freed up seats for travellers from smaller markets like Singapore, which is clearly showing that some pent up demand is now able to be satisfied," added Mr Hickton.
