A trip to Australia’s west coast is getting more expensive every year, with some places more expensive than others.
The key points from our research: • The cost of a night in Sydney’s Westgate Mall, with rooms ranging from $180 to $250.
• The price of a hotel stay in Brisbane’s CBD.
• A trip in Brisbane or Melbourne, with a stay of about $3,000.
• Trip to Perth, with stays ranging from about $1,000 to $2,000 a night.• Trip to Canberra, with nights ranging from around $500 to $1.3 million.
• Visit Melbourne’s CBD for a night of around $1 million.
The list goes on.
The Australian Bureau of Statistics says there are more than 15,000 hotels in Australia, compared to just 5,000 in the US.
Some Western cities have had to be rescued by private operators in the past.
The cost to visit one of these cities varies from a couple of hundred dollars to more than $1m.
A few places are more expensive to visit than others, with one-night stays costing up to $3 million in Sydney and $1-2 million in Brisbane.
Melbourne is famous for its nightlife.
But the price of the most popular bars in the city have risen dramatically.
The price tag of a single night at a bar in the CBD has risen from $1 in 2014 to more like $3 in 2016.
If you want to spend your night in Perth, a single day in the western suburbs of Melbourne is also becoming a luxury.
In the last year, there have been more than 60 per cent increases in the prices of a Melbourne hotel room and more than 40 per cent hikes in Perth’s rate of hotel occupancy.
As hotels continue to expand and grow, the demand for rooms has been rising.
And the demand from Australians for hotel accommodation has been increasing.
The number of Australians renting rooms in the west coast has grown from 4.6 million in 2011 to 11.4 million in 2016, according to the latest Australian Bureau’s National Housing Survey.
The median rental value in Sydney was $1 billion in 2016 and a typical Perth house cost $1 and a median Perth apartment cost $2.
So, what’s going on?
There are a few reasons why prices have risen in Australia’s western cities.
The most obvious one is that foreign visitors to the west are more attracted to cheaper locations.
But the second reason is that the cost of living has been on a steep rise over the last 10 years.
This has not just affected Australian tourists, it’s also impacted Australians in other developed economies.
And it’s not just tourists.
Foreign companies have begun to take advantage of cheaper foreign locations to make more money.
That has created a huge incentive for people to spend more on accommodation.
Many Westerners are becoming more conscious of their expenses and the need to budget.
That’s why hotels have become more expensive in the last couple of years.
But not everyone is experiencing this trend.
Some of the big names in the entertainment industry have been among those who are spending more on hotels than ever before.
What about your budget?
The Westgate mall is the most expensive shopping centre in the country.
It is in Sydney, where the average price for a room in a mall in 2016 was $3.1 million, up from $2 million last year.
There are plenty of other Western cities where a hotel room costs between $1-$2 million.
But Sydney has a much smaller number of hotels and a much larger population.
Sydney’s median house price in 2016 came in at $1 – $1½ million.
Melbourne’s median price in 2018 was $2 – $3million.
We think the increase in hotel occupancy has been partly to blame.
The number of rooms has increased from 5.8 million in 2014, to 7.9 million in 2018.
That means hotels are filling up faster than they can accommodate all the people who need them.
The trend in hotel prices is likely to continue.
The National Australia Bank’s 2017 Annual Report showed that the average Australian stayed in their hotel room in the second quarter of 2017 was up by 6.2 per cent.
That translates to $100,000 worth of spending in hotels.
That is on top of the $200,000 spent on dining and entertainment in the same period.
Is the trend of higher hotel occupancy just a local phenomenon?
Some of the biggest hotel chains have had success with their locations in Western cities, and it may be that a few other companies are doing just as well.
When the price increases are more pronounced, it makes sense to get out of Sydney and Melbourne and head for Sydney or Melbourne instead of Perth.
But many other Western destinations have seen the price increase, including New Zealand and France.
And a recent study from the Australian Institute of Management found that in the long run, Australians are more likely to spend
