“The NSW Visitor Economy has endured more than two years of COVID lockdowns, border closures, travel restrictions and natural disasters but now it is roaring back,” said NSW Tourism Industry Council Executive Manager Greg Binskin. 

“Now is the perfect time for us all to recharge, get out and spend time visiting our cities and regional NSW towns and villages,” Mr Binskin said. 

“It’s great to feel the energy that the domestic and international visitors are bringing back to our world-class harbour city of Sydney; filling hotel rooms, booking tables at restaurants, attending events and visiting attractions. 

“With the holidays in full swing, families are booking short breaks, taking road trips to regional areas to visit family and friends. 

“On the way they’re visiting national parks, soaking up cultural experiences, visiting wineries or just relaxing on a beach or riverbank.
