Eating and drinking out jumps in popularity, study reveals

Aussies went out to more cafes, restaurants, fast food outlets and pubs compared to other leisure activities during the covered period.

Nearly 1.35 billion - that is how much Australians have gone out for a bite or drink in the past 12 months ending March 30, according to a recent study by Roy Morgan.

The number indicates that every Australian aged 14 and over has went to cafes, restaurants, fast food outlets and/or pubs for an average of 66 times each, up by an average of 2 trips per person since last analysed in September 2016.

Unlike the food and sports category, visiting friends and family went down to 835 million from 846 million, as well as going to beaches, nightclubs and playing poker machines.
