There is magic in bringing a like-minded community together. On Saturday the 28th of April, Tourism Fest 2018 kicked off with over 40 participants including Luke Gosling MP. 

It was incredible to see the creativity and ideas pitched. In the end 6 teams were forged and the magic begun. 

From better Kakadu and Batchelor experiences, to much needed retirees' road trippin' facilities, to new mountain bike trails concepts, to targeted young women's tour packages, and to even travel tattoos!
