STR: Preliminary June data for Melbourne hotels
13 JULY 2020 9:22 AM

Hotels in Melbourne, Australia, reported occupancy fell 53.4% to 34% during June, according to preliminary monthly data from STR. ADR decreased 29.4% to 119.14 Australian dollars ($83.26) and RevPAR declined 67.1% to AU$40.52 ($28.32).

LONDON—Melbourne showed slightly higher hotel performance in June 2020 but the same significant level of year-over-year declines, according to preliminary data from STR.

Comparison with June 2019:

• Occupancy: -53.4% to 34.0%
• Average daily rate (ADR): -29.4% to AUD119.14
• Revenue per available room (RevPAR): -67.1% to AUD40.52

Higher weekend demand from leisure travelers has helped push performance levels slightly above the consistent demand of quarantined returning travelers. June marked the first month that occupancy and RevPAR were above 30% and AUD40.00, respectively, since March.

July’s performance is likely to be negatively impacted as Melbourne and Victoria have reinstated stage 3 stay-at-home restrictions through mid-August. A look at forward occupancy in Melbourne and other capital cities can be found here.
