Destination Guide: Australia

Dreamtime kicks off in Melbourne

Tourism Australia has showcased its incentive experiences to more than 80 international business events buyers from across 12 countries, with Dreamtime 2013 taking place this week in Melbourne.

Food and wine experiences have been high on the agenda, with menus designed exclusively by some of Australia’s most internationally recognised and revered chefs.

Tourism Australia managing director Andrew McEvoy said the weeklong event was an opportunity to ensure Australia remains top-of-mind internationally as an exceptional place to meet and do business.

"Exceptional experiences and world-class destinations, with the backdrop of a pristine natural environment, are key reasons why Australia consistently ranks as a preferred business events destination for the international market," McEvoy said."Increasingly however it is our reputation as a culinary destination that is drawing business events to Australia."

Dreamtime 2013 runs from 9-13 December and starts in Melbourne with business and networking events followed by three days of educational visits to Adelaide, Cairns, Gold Coast, Northern Territory and Sydney.
