Aus­tralia.

While cap­i­tal cities are per­form­ing well, the lack of dis­per­sal into re­gional ar­eas means we are still do­ing it tough.

For the two ma­jor weeks over Christ­mas book­ings are look­ing pos­i­tive and with a year ahead of 29 vis­its from cruise ships, Car­ni­vale and Chal­lenge Cairns, the so­lar eclipse and some new prod­uct de­vel­op­ment, things are look­ing pos­i­tive for 2012.

There are some more great in­dus­try op­por­tu­ni­ties and we have an ex­cit­ing ma­jor national mar­ket­ing cam­paign in the New Year.

With Neigh­bours and Reef Doc­tor high­light­ing the re­gion and some ex­cel­lent cov­er­age in both in­ter­na­tional and do­mes­tic travel me­dia in­clud­ing the Qan­tas in-flight mag­a­zine, the strength of the wed­ding mar­ket and the re­newed ac­tiv­ity in the in­cen­tive and con­fer­ence mar­ket, all point to a pos­i­tive fu­ture for our great desti­na­tion.

The team here at Tourism Port Dou­glas Dain­tree, Tara, Chelsea, Jess and of course my­self, wish all of our com­mu­nity, fam­ily and friends a happy, safe, pros­per­ous Christ­mas and New Year.
