Over 70% of Australian timeshare owners (or approximately 120,000 of the 170,000 total owners) had a holiday, short break or trip away for leisure at a timeshare resort in Australia in 2012. This represents an approximate increase in the number of owners going on holiday using their timeshare of approximately 17% compared to 2009.
By comparison, total domestic overnight and international visitation to Australia increased by approximately half that of the timeshare industry (9%) between 2008-09 and 2011-12 (Tourism Forecasting Committee, 2012).
There were a total of 91 timeshare resorts in Australia in December 2012, with 2,683 timeshare units, predominantly located in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. Around 55% of the units are 2-bedroom units, with 27% 1-bedroom units.
There were approximately 966,400 nights available at timeshare units in Australia in 2012, of which 873,890 nights were occupied, equating to an occupancy rate of 90.4%. This represented an increase in occupancy from 86.5% in 2009 (AECgroup, 2010).
There were an estimated 1,844 full-time equivalent (FTE) employees of timeshare sales, marketing, exchange and resort companies in Australia in 2012. These employees were paid an estimated $118.3 million in wages, salaries and commissions in 2012.
