The trend level in total guest nights has declined by 1 percent since April 2005, following a period of increases that began in July 1998.

Seven of the 12 regions recorded fewer guest nights in January 2006 than in January 2005. The Bay of Plenty and Auckland regions recorded the largest decreases, while Otago and Nelson/Marlborough/Tasman recorded the largest increases. Guest nights spent by international visitors were 2 percent lower in January 2006 than in January 2005, while domestic guest nights were also 2 percent lower.

In January 2006, international guest nights in the North Island were 5 percent lower than in January 2005, while domestic guest nights were 4 percent lower. International guest nights in the South Island were 1 percent higher and domestic guest nights were 3 percent higher.
