And this boom in adventure travel sector is being rated as the best among the tourism industry of Australia. Also, as per the forecasts, a threefold increase is likely in the adventure working holidays in Australia over a period of next three years along with a four times increase in the environmental friendly holidays.
The report named ‘the Passport to Adventure report’ has been commissioned by seven adventure-travel sector companies. Apart from Australia, this increase in adventure and working holidays has been forecast in New Zealand.
Meanwhile, the remaining Western Europe and Ireland will witness a decline in the adventure working holidays by nearly 8 percent, TUI reports.
Australia will continue to have British tourists visiting the country on adventure trips. Adventure enthusiasts including those having love for biking, rafting, hiking or climbing will take on adventure holidays to Australia and other far-off destinations in the next three years, said an editor at Adventure Travel Online Magazine, Alun Davies.
And there will be an increase of 190 percent in the number of such travelers as compared to the last three years, TUI stated.
Davies also feels that the market for such adventure holidays or trips is going to expand even further with increased number of thrill-adventure holiday lovers taking on such trips.
It may be worth mentioning that Australian working holiday visas are loved by British graduates and students aged between 18 years and 30 years. Such visas enable youngsters to live and take up temporary employment in Australia for a maximum period of one year.
If they opt for certain specified jobs in Australia, their stay may also get extended beyond one year. Moreover, such adventure holiday trips also enable them to work in Australia without any need for making application for Australian work visa.
As per a poll carried out among the users of a website ‘Travelzoo’ dealing with travel and entertainment, nearly 42 percent of people said they would travel more in the year 2010 as compared to the year 2009.
