    Sydney, (ANI): Actress Nicole Kidman"s wartime epic Australia is expected to give a boost to the tourism industry Down Under. According to British travel agents, Kidman"s popularity would act as the potential saviour of the tourism industry in her native country.

    The figures by Australian Bureau of Statistics have revealed that British tourist numbers fell by 6 per cent to 57,000 last November, compared with the same period in 2006. While the number of tourists from Korea fell by 13 per cent last year, and Japanese tourist numbers fell by 12 per cent.

    The Association of British Travel Agents predict that Kidman's starring role in Australia will boost numbers, as would the launch of the Formula One racing season in Melbourne in March and the Rugby League World Cup in October.

    "Whenever we do a survey of where people would travel to if money was no object, Australia always tops the list," Theage.com.au quoted a spokesman, as saying. "Nicole Kidman is very popular in the UK, so the film will definitely boost interest in Darwin among tourists, he added.
