Australia has had a top spot on the global list of photo-gathering countries for several years now, and the first time the country was ranked in the top 10 was in the year 2000.
It has been in the 10th position since 2010, and is currently fifth, just below Switzerland and the United States.
Australia is also the only country on the list of top 10 to feature in the gallery of world’s most photographed countries, where the US is ranked number one.
The most popular photography locations in Australia include the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, the Gold Coast, Melbourne’s Docklands, Brisbane, Hobart and Perth.
The Australian National Gallery, which holds the title of Australia’s most visited museum, has had more than 250 million visitors to its collection since opening in 1996.
It is home to some of the world’s finest art and science collections, as well as a gallery for works by Sir James Gairdner, Charles Darwin, William Blake and William Morris.
The country’s biggest museums have also featured prominently in the country’s tourism and arts portfolios.
