Not as much as "Indonesia", where Aussie tourism is pretty much limited to the island of Bali

Fiji must be magnificent all year round and Australia is so close. Why wouldn't they go there?

And why not? No surprises NZ is No 1 on this list. So many connections with the 'West Island'.

Also it's cheaper and quicker from the east coast of Australia to visit New Zealand than it is to go to Perth or even nearer.

As an Australian, I can tell you Fiji is not swamped by Aussies because of our low population

344,700 trips a year to a country with a population of less than a million is pretty significant

Thats for the whole year though. You're not going to get that many in Fiji at any given time

@limewell Correct (for the mean number of Aussie tourists per day), assuming that the year in question is not a leap year.

Try going to majorca in summer. 1.2 million population, 14 million foreign tourists. And dont even mention the mainland spanish.

It's got nothing to do with the Australian population though - It's relative to the population of Fiji.

I'm not so sure about that, you only need to look at Hollywood. It is swarming with aussies; Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Judy Davis, Russell Crown, Mel Gibson, Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman, Rose Byrne, Toni Collette, the Hemsworths...

Not really. Australians are generally more conditioned to travelling for long distances. Combine that with family/cultural ties and the convenience of holidaying in a country where the English language prevails. I'm surprised that the UAE doesn't feature given its international flight hub status

For sure 95% of Indonesia visits are to Bali. Us Aussies need to branch out more in Indonesia - its a big place and Bali is way too overdeveloped these days. I know Lombok is getting more popular (which in a way is kind of a shame given its wonderfully undeveloped by comparison), but there's all of Java, Sumatra, Flores, and many others out there.

I think it has to do with the fact that UK is probably an official way of writing it, kind of like DPRK (for North Korea) or USA. However, I do wish NZ would work for the quizzes on here

I was surprised that Papua New Guinea isn't on there since it's practically swimming distance from Australia, but looking it up it appears that PNG doesn't have a whole lot in the way of a tourist industry.
