Bruce Poon Tip’s new travel doco to premiere in Sydney this week

Travel DAZE is just around the corner (THIS THURSDAY!) and to celebrate, we’d like to invite you to a very special event taking place after hours.

After you’ve heard from our blockbuster lineup of speakers (featuring the likes of Australia’s favourite clever person Dr Karl, G Adventure’s founder Bruce Poon-Tip, B Corp’s Mindy Leow, former deputy chief medical officer Dr Nick Coatsworth and LOADS more), we’ve got a special surprise in store for you.

No, it’s not an after-party at the pub down the road (though, that is likely to happen); we’re hosting the Australian premiere of The Last Tourist, a new documentary that lays the industry bare and offers actionable steps to ensure travel is used as a force for good.

Travel has reached a tipping point. Pre-pandemic, overtourism was impacting the environment, wildlife and vulnerable communities around the world.

As international travel returns, we have been presented with an opportunity: COVID-19 forced a travel pause that has given the industry a chance to reset and rebuild in a more meaningful way, to deliver more enriching experiences to a more conscious consumer and ultimately reshape modern-day tourism.

Join us at Palace Chauvel Cinema on 9 June, just after Travel DAZE wraps up for an exclusive screening of The Last Tourist with executive producer and founder of G Adventures, Bruce Poon Tip who will be joining the filmmakers after the screening for a special Q&A.

Find out more, and register for tickets HERE.

Travel DAZE is Travel Weekly’s home-grown remedy for the biggest challenges facing travel, bringing together great minds from across the globe to share ideas and challenge the status quo.

As the travel reboot steps up a gear, the importance of coming together and learning how we can make the future of travel sustainable is more important than ever.

Join us on 9 June 2022 at the iconic Palace Chauvel Cinema and together, we can rebuild better and stronger than ever.

Crew members were also chuffed to be there, so much so that they learned the Cairns-Can, which is like the French can-can but with much more Four X Gold involved.
