Making Your Tourist Dollar Count

Making Your Tourist Dollar Count

The tourist dollar. Far more than just an economic buzz-phrase, the tourist dollar is a vital part of the Australian economy and, over the past year or so, the tourist dollar piggy bank has been sadly devoid of coin. Between devastating floods and bushfires, and a little nuisance called Covid-19, our tourist industry, especially regionally has been hit hard. But it’s not all bad news.

Australia has recently been recognised as one of the safest destinations in the world. While we’re not letting international tourists in just yet (aside from our southern neighbours), this announcement guarantees that people will be lining up to visit as soon as the global pandemic is further under control.

And the best news for us Aussies is that we can safely make the most of our vast and varied tourist destinations right now. So while we’re all missing our European vacations and the beaches of Bali, this is the perfect time to soften the blow by exploring our very own (and very beautiful) backyard.

Holiday parks are an accommodation option well worth considering as you plan your domestic travel. Aside from being great value for money, they offer a range of fantastic activities and facilities to make your stay fun, comfortable and memorable. With an abundance of outstanding holiday parks to choose from, there’s bound to be a cozy cabin awaiting you no matter which corner of our glorious, sometimes-sunburnt country you plan to visit.

It’s important to ensure that your precious tourist dollar is going straight to those who need it most, and a good way to do that is by booking your accommodation directly through the park itself (as opposed to using a secondary booking site such as or Expedia). While secondary sites can be handy for research, it’s far better for the local economy to book directly through the park’s own website (or by giving them a call if you still like to do things the old-fashioned way).

Tourist Cabin Connect offers the best of both worlds – compiling all the top accommodation deals for you to explore, then guiding you to book directly to ensure the park gets 100% of your booking fee. So make sure you’re following Tourist Cabin Connect on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date with the latest offers and discover some of the leading holiday parks in Australia.

So, where are you and your family heading this weekend? Put those dreams of international travel to one side and take full advantage of living in a country that is, quite literally, the envy of the world. Our economy will love you, and you might be pleasantly surprised by just how many amazing domestic travel opportunities are at your fingertips when you’re lucky enough to call Australia home.
