TRAVEL 2 AMAZING AUSSIE ADVENTURE
TPDD executive officer Tara Bennett joined destinations and operators from around Australia at the annual Travel 2 Amazing Aussie Adventure Symposium last week. The event was held in Cairns and brought together 50 top selling North American travel agents for a comprehensive update on Australian travel options. The North America market is well positioned for growth with the lower Australian dollar making the country more attractive. The day comprised sixminute appointments with all 50 agents. TPDD was the only local tourism organisation in Australia to be invited to attend with many of the agents telling us Port Douglas and the Daintree is their favoured Australian destination! The peak travel months for North Americans of January to March for North Americans are an excellent fit to fill the quieter months for the Douglas region.
