Winter tourism is continuing to break records as spending increases in every region.

Associate Tourism Minister Paula Bennett says a just-released report shows domestic and international visitors spent over $1.7 billion last month, up $69 million on July last year.

Nelson posted the largest increase, followed by Otago and Auckland.

"Tourism is booming and the government is incredibly pleased all parts of New Zealand are benefiting," Ms Bennett said.
