I find the cost of domestic tourism in Australia, including NZ, very high....from accommodation to activities to restaurants etc. In Dec last year, we spent NZ$1880 for the 4 of us sharing a quad room overnight on a boat cruising Doubtful Sound. I get much better value going to SE Asia where the service standards esp in hotels are very high.Whilst a boom of domestic tourism is something to hope for, I suspect a few attitudes might have to change. I've obviously travelled a lot, and fairly large parts of Australia, that are otherwise quite tourism dependent, seem to have a basic attitude of "leave your wallet, but otherwise piss off".
