Are Aussie ‘bogans’ ruining Bali?

Australians adore Bali, with 1.25 million visiting a Indonesian island final year – and revellers are flourishing undone during being monotonous as bogans.


Travel consultant Quentin Long told A Current Affair the pigeon-holing was a “height of snobbery”.

“The reason we adore Bali so many is that no matter what character of holiday we’re looking for, we can find it there,” he said.

He pronounced Bali was many some-more affordable for many Australian families than other destinations.

A family of 4 can compensate adult to $2088 to fly from Melbourne to Hamilton Island – compared to $388 to Bali.

However, bad poise from Australian tourists could also be contributing to a wider notice of Bali as a bogan paradise.

“Schoolies adore to go to Bali since they consider there are no manners there,” transport publisher Michael Gebicki said.

“It’s a mistake to consider that we can go there and get divided with anything, that you’ve got a looseness to unleash your middle vampire, that is unfortunately what a lot of generally younger travellers seem to do, and they mostly humour as a result.”

Last year, 18-year-old Jamie Murphy was arrested and hold in a military jail for 24 hours in Bali after confidence guards during a nightclub claimed to have found a bag of white powder on him.

He was liberated after it was guarded that a energy was not an unlawful drug.

Illegal drugs are reportedly abundant in a holiday hotspot, though unbending sentences face those who indulge.

“Despite what people competence think, we can’t go to Bali and only do whatever we want, wherever we want,” Mr Long said.

“It’s not a riotous land.”

However, a “bogan dollar” is severely valued.

Mr Long pronounced Australian tourism in Bali over a critical function.

“The Bali economy depends on Australian tourists,” he said.
