Tourism is one of the world’s largest and fastest growing export sectors, contributing to 9% of the global GDP, and accounting for one in eleven jobs worldwide (UN World Tourism Organisation). And Aussies are doing our part. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, 11.1 million Australians returned from short-term overseas trips in 2018, making us the 9th most travelled nation in the world per capita. If you’re after the inside scoop on where and how to travel well in 2019, who better to ask than a travel journalist? So this month, to help us navigate the world of travel, we bring you two national travel editors, and a ‘Tripologist’: Our highly itinerant panel consists of:
- Anthony Dennis: Traveller editor, and the author of two travel books;
- Jana Frawley: News Corp’s national travel editor (Escape), Australia’s number one travel media brand;
- Michael Gebicki: Travel writer (Traveller’s resident Tripologist), photographer, and tour host.
When: Tuesday 30th July, 5.30pm drinks ahead of a 6-7pm panel discussion
Where: Golden Age Bar and Cinema, 80 Commonwealth Street, Surry Hills
