Peru is more than just a historical and cultural destination, according to the countrys tourist bureau, with the Inca capital, Macchu Piccu, the city lights of Lima, the Amazons water safaris and breathtaking highlands.
Showcasing the destinations growing modern and high-end offering in Sydney earlier this week at the 2012 PromPeru roadshow, the tourism Groups Australian representative Manuela Neilsen explained that there was so much more for Aussies to discover across the entire country.
Ms Neilsen said Peru was such a diverse country, made up of 12 percent territory, 28 percent highlands and 60 percent Amazon and jungle.
Peru is well known as a destination for the intrepid Australian traveller but in recent years there have been significant developments in high-end hotels and services which have made the destination more appealing to the discerning traveller, PromPeru Asia-Pacific coordinator Rosana Guinea said earlier this year.
According to local statistics, traveller spending in the country spiked by five percent in 2011 over the previous year, with travellers spending over $1500 on their holiday.
Meanwhile the number of Aussies heading to Peru also increased between January and June this year compared to the corresponding period 2011, with 23 percent more Australian arrivals.
