Australia wants you to look beyond the Opera House | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

Earlier tourism from India to Australia meant the Sydney Opera House or catching a match at the Melbourne Cricket Stadium. "People would only visit the eastern parts of Australia," says Nishant Kashikar, Tourism Australia's Country Manager, India and Gulf. Now, according to him, there has been a "huge change." There has been a 19% increase in the number of Indians visiting Australia, with Kashikar crediting the rise to the new promotions rolled out by the government, easier procedures, stable currency and more Indians, therefore relatives, living in the country. There have also been significant shifts in the nation's travel and culinary tastes. Indians are curious about the restaurants owned by chefs and judges who come on Masterchef Australia.
