Every year, more than five-and-a-half million visitors arrive on Australia’s shores for a visit. Australia’s comparatively strong economic climate brings business travellers from such distant lands as the United Kingdom, India, Japan, China, and the United States. The remoteness of the country, however, makes a brief visit unattractive physically and mentally.

The long flight to Australia often results in a longer stay being more desirable for the business traveller and tourist alike from both southern and northern hemispheres. If you are planning a visit to Australia for business and you can spare the time to enjoy some sightseeing, take a few side trips for pleasure and find out what we have to offer.

If you are travelling to Darwin the capital city of Northern Territory, Australia, you can explore Kakadu National Park, a rich biodiverse habitat listed as a World Heritage Site for its unique natural and cultural significance.
