Current and Future Hotel Demand and Supply

The increased demand for rooms, the rapid growth of domestic and international visitors, and the historically lower levels of new supply have majorly contributed for the gap between the demand and supply of new hotel rooms in Australia.

New hotel developments require multiple number of planning regulations, which affect the cost and timeframe of projects. Regulatory frameworks thus had the potential to hinder timely and innovative hotel projects as they imposed outlandish business limitations on investors in the major cities and capitals of Australia.

The challenges involved in developing tourism attractions and accommodation facilities play a key role in contributing to an undersupply of hotel capacity in Australia.

A scarcity of land in capital cities and competition from other land uses with better business cases has contributed to high occupancy rates for hotels, underinvestment in existing stock and substantial turn-away demand during peak periods. Regional tourism attractions are often located in areas of natural amenity which typically face a higher regulatory burden, potentially lowering investor interest.
