Australia and Beyond Holidays 

 Quarterly Newsletter May to July

Domestic sales are coming back to life in Australia with domestic borders in most cases having been open. Recently there has been a small outbreak in Victoria where Melbourne and the State was locked down by the government, however we expect that to be lifted in the next week as the outbreak has been largely contained. As the vaccine roll out in Australia progresses we hope to have more information on our international borders opening so that we are able to welcome back our international guests to Australia.

With the “travel bubble” open between Australia and New Zealand we have released a number of short break self drive itineraries in New Zealand which offer great value.

Next week we are looking forward to participating at A.T.E (Australian Tourism Exchange) this year where we will be meeting with many of our new domestic travel agents as well as catching up with International agents via the A.T.E on line meetings portal.

With international borders closed there have been staff shortages in Australia with some tourism operators and resorts unable to operate at full capacity. This has led to many popular areas in Australia filling up fast. If you are Australian we urge you to advise your clients that many popular spots such as Hamilton Island ext are filling up right up to the New Year.

Australia and Beyond Holidays has added a great deal of new product to its range including a number of small group journeys. This year we have seen great demand for the Outback and visits to regional areas, this has lead to great value rates and inclusions in  Australian Capital cities , especially Sydney and Melbourne.  We have excellent value in both cities with Crown resorts in both cities as well are introducing some excellent value add ons at The Sydney Opera House to be released shortly. Having missed out last year we are looking forward to celebrating Sydney’s Vivid  festival in August with details to follow.

Thank you all for your support
