1 Mins read

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Around 70 leading wholesalers, tour operators, and travel agents took part in the two roadshows conducted by Kerala Tourism in Melbourne and Sydney last week to tap deeper into Australia state’s sixth-biggest tourist market. The high-energy roadshows, held after a gap of two years in Australia, advertised the best of `God’s Own Country’ in these cities generating significant interests in new and established offerings in Kerala, tourism officials claimed. As many as 35,244 Australians holidayed in the state in 2015, and this year’s campaign was held ahead of the official start of the tourist season in November.

Tourism director U V Jose led a delegation that included representatives of 12 trade partners, including Abad Hotels & Resorts, CGH Earth, Chalukya Grace Tours, Discover Kerala Holidays, Eastend Hotels & Resorts, Intersight Tours & Travels, Kumarakom Lake Resort, Marvel Tours, Pioneer Personalized Holidays and Spice Routes. Kerala is already a well-known brand in Australia. Upon seeing the surge in tourist arrivals from the lucrative emerging market, both the government and tourism stakeholders were keen to explore better and exploit the potential. We hope our strong showing at these roadshows will lead to more industry tie-ups and greater tourist footfalls to Kerala,” said tourism minister A C Moideen.
