BYRON Bay is NSW's most expensive tourist destination and rates in price among some of the most costly in the world, a new report shows.

The report by Hotels.com found Byron Bay cost visitors an average $192 per night for accommodation. The average price in Sydney was a comparatively low $181 per night.

By comparison, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and San Francisco all had cheaper accommodation.

The report also found accommodation prices across the nation were generally headed up - an average 9% across Australia - with the Gold Coast recording the biggest jump in 2011, up 19% to an average $161 per night, followed closely by Brisbane, which jumped 18% to an average $174, and Perth, up 17% to $184.
