The latest findings from Roy Morgan reveal that when it comes to the length of our holidays, shorter trips are overwhelmingly more popular with Australians than longer ones. Only 4.1% went away for a month or more on their last trip. At the opposite end of the spectrum, 4.1% took off for a month or more. Holidays of between four and seven nights accounted for 15% of travellers, while 12.9% were away for between eight and 14 nights. From there, numbers drop dramatically with just 4.7% taking a holiday of 15-21 nights and 3.3% enjoying a longer trip of 22-30 nights. Overall, the average length of a holiday taken by Australians in the 12 months to June 2016 was 8.5 nights. Find out more.
