Beyond the expected

Canberra least popular travel destination

By johnboy 29 October 2008 167

The Canberra Times is having a giggle that Canberra has come stone motherless last in an online poll.

    “One in three of the 2526 people surveyed in a poll taken by online travel marketplace rated Canberra as the least appealing vacation destination.”

“Come to Canberra and watch politicians sing bad karaoke at the Holy Grail” might have to be the new marketing line.

A major population increase is not really all that necessary to get a successful tourism industry going. A bit more concentration of population in the CBD would be useful to keep certain businesses operational during the lean times, and also to get some more vibrant street culture going on there. But like I said in a previous post – the Gold Coast only has about 450000 permanent residents.

I reckon it would be a really good thing if we could find a way to increase the overall size and population of Canberra.

Sweet Jesus NO! Why do we want to be like every other city, and loose the unique part of Canberra which IS being quiet, chilled out and laid back?!

Gran: tell Gramps that if he gets the snip, everyone will call him “Christmas Tree”. That’ll make him think twice. 🙂

caf said :

where they go further and break down which areas within the Territory had the highest and lowest growth etc.

Probably need to include QBN in the figures too, because apparently it’s NSW fastest growing regional town… from memory I think the ABS has a regional analysis that includes it?
