Sydney VS Brisbane – who has the best travel agents?!

It’s like the State of Origin but for travel agents, because Brisbane and Sydney have officially been pitted up against each other.

Travel Weekly and CLIA have launched the incredible Cruise Pursuit, like Trivial Pursuit but waaayyy better.

And not only is it a FREE, fun night out with a few mates – featuring three hours of food and well-deserved drinks – it’s also a battle of the ages for agents of both cities.

Of course, there’s team prizes for winners of both the Sydney and Brisbane’s events, but the real battle we’re seeing is the competition to see which city will get the most correct answers.

Sydneysiders, it’s time to show Brisbane what you’re made of. Brisbanites, it’s time to put your best sea-legs forward.

All you have to do is buddy up and create a trivia team with three to four people. Just register you and your friends in a team and start prepping your cruise knowledge to take home not only your city’s cash, but the glory of being the smartest agents on the East Coast (sorry Melbourne).

Don’t have a team? Don’t worry! Just register and we’ll pop you with a whole new crew of buddies for the evening.

The cash money prizes include:

  • 1st Place: $750
  • 2nd Place: $500
  • 3rd Place: $250
