Travellers already seek out Australia for its natural beauty, but with the recent plunge of the Australian dollar we can expect many of these travellers to return to our shores.
The SMH reported today that "the Australian dollar was in freefall this afternoon, plunging to as low as 82.56 US cents against the greenback and falling sharply against other major currencies, on renewed worries about the health of the global economy."
In a positive spin, we can expect particular interest from the People’s Republic of China in the Australian luxury goods industry, given that they suffer from incredibly high taxes in their own country.
