A total of 300 qualified specialists will have the opportunity to travel to and around Australia with airline partner Qantas for training workshops in Darwin followed by a five-day fam, choosing from a range of itinerary options created by the State and Territory Organisations. While in Darwin for the workshops, agents will also experience other regions of the Northern Territory, with visits to the National Parks of Litchfield, Kakadu or Nitmiluk (Katherine Gorge).
Other activities include being part of an Aboriginal welcoming ceremory at Cullen Bay and the chance to get to know the locals at the Mindil Beach Markets - where agents will be issued with ‘Mindil Beach Money’ to spend. Throughout their stay in Darwin, agents will be encouraged to embrace Australia’s relaxed outdoor lifestyle with lunches by the Waterfront, dinners on the beach, live music and street performances.
