STR’s preliminary October 2019 data for hotels in Melbourne, indicates performance affected by strong supply growth.


Based on daily data from the month, Melbourne reported the following in year-over-year comparisons:

  • Supply: +4.4%

  • Demand: +2.9%

  • Occupancy: -1.4% to 85.2%

  • ADR: -3.5% to $189

  • RevPAR: -4.9% to $161


October marked the eighth consecutive month of occupancy declines for the market and the lowest absolute occupancy level for the month since 2013. STR analysts note the effect of supply growth on occupancy and ADR levels even with a rise in demand. Daily data showed performance rather consistent with the corresponding days in 2018.


STR will release full October results later this month. The 2020 forecast update for Melbourne Centre will also be available
