Everyone headed to Brazil for the World Cup in 2014 and, this year, Brazil will play host again to another world-class sporting event: the Olympic Games. Known for its love of a carnivale, Rio de Janeiro is readying itself for a party of all parties, with athletes and spectators from around the world descending upon its famed beaches, samba clubs, its caipirinha kiosks, and its buzzing streets in the name of sport and pleasure. With the beaches, the atmosphere, the sport; this is one party you don’t want to miss. 

Japan

Japan is a fantastic place to visit anytime. All the time. More often than not you can find a cheap flight from Australia to Japan which makes it such an easy international getaway. The sakura blossoming, the crazy Shibuya crossing, or tackling the slopes in Niseko are individually enough to make you want to get to Japan.

Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a city filled with foodies. It's bustling, blaring metropolis where every single person has one thing on their mind: food. Hong Kong is the home of the dim sum, but also brings together cuisine from all over China, and the world. If you travel based on gastronomy, Hong Kong has to be on your 2016 travel menu.

Cuba

You need to go to Cuba and you need to go now. Travel restrictions between Cuba and the USA have been relaxed after more than 50 years of both countries ignoring one another– 
as a result tourism is about to go gangbusters.  Cuba is on the cusp of change, this Caribbean island nation has been slowly revealing itself to the world and is about to throw open the doors as relations with the US improve. The embassies have reopened. The tourists won't be far behind. Get there now.

Sri Lanka

Lying between the well-visited countries of India and south east Asia, Sri Lanka has been hiding in plain sight. And if you’ve heard Sri Lanka described as the ‘poor man’s Maldives’ and been discouraged from visiting, boy-oh-boy have you missed out. Sri Lanka’s endless beaches, rainforest-covered mountains, ancient temples, elephants, rolling surf, flavourful food – and did we mention the elephants? – position Sri Lanka as a must-see in 2016.

Morocco

Morocco is so close to Europe yet the two places could not be more vastly different. The weather, food, colours, smells, and history make Morocco one of the most diverse countries in Africa. The soaring mountains, sweeping desert, rugged coast, and winding alleys of ancient cities and souqs are wondrous.  


Byron Bay




Byron Bay has some of the prettiest beaches and best surf breaks in the world. It is also home to a stunning light house at Australia’s most easterly point, Cape Byron where you may even be lucky enough to spot a whale during the annual migration. During winter the Byron Bay delivers luscious warm days, perfect for strolling through the weekend markets, and the annual Splendour in the Grass music festival in July should be on everyone’s bucket list.

Selling the Hunter to the world-Airport_news

Yesterday, more than 30 tourism professionals, representing 19 businesses, attended two workshops hosted by Newcastle Airport.

We had representation from 19 local tourism businesses, proving there is a real desire, not to mention the need, for tourism operators in the Hunter to become 'export ready' for rapidly growing Asian markets.

The workshops were facilitated by Newcastle Airport because we wanted to help our local businesses be ready for when the Asian market lands in our region, and we are committed to being the airport the region deserves and helping to grow the visitor economy in our region.

With inbound international arrivals to Australia set to grow from 8.4 million to 12.3 million in 2025, coupled, with Destination NSW's strategic focus to send visitors our way with more frequency, what yesterday's workshops showed was there are now more tourism operators on the right path to support the influx of international tourism set to fall upon the Hunter.

During the workshop, attendees engaged with export marketing tourism professionals from Australian Attractions and learned about the inbound market to Australia and NSW, the traditional marketplace and commission structures, online and dynamic pricing, how to work with inbound tour operators, and what their business needs to do to become ‘export ready’.

The Asia Export Ready Workshop is part of Newcastle Airport’s commitment to develop the region as a highly-desired destination, not only by Novocastrians and Sydney-siders, but also by international and interstate visitors.
