At a Cahoots Insight Dinner featuring Tourism Australia CEO John O'Sullivan some particular destinations stood up as favourites. At the top were Rottnest island off Perth, Margaret River in the south and the Whitsunday Islands. Interestingly - given the dinner was held at the Balla Restaurant at Sydney’s Star City - Sydney Harbour also cracked a big mention.
John O’Sullivan’s passion and energy were the context for a most entertaining and edifying night. There were 19 of us and John left a strong impression with his willingness to hear all points of view and provide detailed information and perspectives. We learnt that:
Toowoomba has the good fortune to have the Wagners brothers as a driving force with Wellcamp Airport and everything else those lads are doing. John and Liz Wagner were at the dinner and John & his brothers have formed their own tourism Association for the Toowoomba area with a view to getting things happening in a bigger way. They have already proven the so-called expert's completely wrong with the rapid success of Wellcamp and no doubt will do the same with their vision for tourism in the Toowoomba area.
The Australian Tourism Commission has committed to promote SuperFoiler Grand Prix throughout its international network. We integrate well with the Commission’s promotional theme of aquatic attractions and promotes Australia as a leader in entrepreneurial endeavour.
