I saw this bit which is ex-fares:

"VisitBritain has revealed that Aussies are the top international shoppers in Britain, flocking to stores such as Harrods and Selfridges.

According to VisitBritain, Australians spent $1.5 billion in Britain last year, most of it on clothes."

Cheap airfares must be viewed in the context of the strong dollar of recent times (and what the fares and holiday costs could have been without it); 1.7 dollars for a pound to spend in Harrods and Selfridges.
