Millions of people are expected to visit Sydney this summer to soak up the sunny days, balmy nights and exciting calendar of events. According to the NSW Government’s tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, Sydney typically welcomes around 15 million visitors between October and March each year. The 2014-15 season will be no exception, as the iconic city is estimated to attract approximately 17 million regional, interstate and international visitors.

Deputy Premier and Minister for Tourism and Major Events, Troy Grant said: “Last year we welcomed 16 million visitors between October and March, up around 9% on the previous year. These visitors stayed more than 48 million nights, adding $8 billion to the NSW economy.

“Summer in Sydney will once again give every visitor something to enjoy – from our beautiful beaches, fantastic food and wine, great shopping and of course our major events and festivals. With over 20 Sydney events supported by Destination NSW, covering everything from sports, arts, entertainment and lifestyle, there’s plenty to choose from.”

Destination NSW CEO, Sandra Chipchase, commented: “Sports fanatics, art lovers, bargain shoppers, beach goers, and festival fans are all covered this Summer with an exciting range of events. The Extreme Sailing Series, Tropfest, Australia Day, the AACTA Awards, Hurley Australian Open of Surfing, the ICCC Cricket World Cup, AFC Asian Cup, International Art Series and Dirty Dancing are just some of the events that will be in town, and I’m sure will be enjoyed by local and visiting audiences.
