Hot Air Balloon Cairns #ATE14
Visitors from the UK are excited to join Hot Air Balloon Cairns for the perfect start to their ATE14 experience.

The Australian Tourism Exchange 2014 (#ATE14) is the largest annual tourism industry event in Australia, and provides an opportunity for Australian tour operators and industry representatives to promote our wonderful part of the world. Not only do delegates get introduced to the best of what Australia has to offer in terms of a travel destination, they also have the opportunity to experience first hand the accommodation, sights and tours of Cairns, Port Douglas, The Great Barrier Reef, the Atherton Tablelands and the magnificent World Heritage Rainforest.

Naturally, Hot Air Balloon Cairns will be well represented at #ATE14. As the numbers begin to build in Cairns as #ATE14 delegates begin to trickle in to the region, the skies that we are famous for have begun to look bluer, the sunrises more breath-taking, and the atmosphere along the Cairns Esplanade more energetic.
