QANTAS Holidays hosted its 22nd annual Global Achievers gala dinner in Darwin last month, with several hundred top selling travel agents experiencing the region courtesy of key partners including Tourism NT, Qantas and a range of generous local suppliers.

A range of activities were on offer including helicopter and seaplane flights, fishing trips and excursions to the spectacular Litchfield National Park, with Qantas Holidays/Viva! Holidays head of sales Fiona Dalton saying “it was fantastic to bring our top travel consultants to such a beautiful location that is so rich in culture and history”.

The gala dinner itself, held on the Darwin waterfront to the accompaniment of a stunning fireworks display, had a 1940s theme which included plenty of frivolity with a fabulous band which had guests up and dancing in no time. Once again hosted by TV star Hugh Sheridan, the evening had a touch of authenticity courtesy of the Qantas Heritage Collection which supplied historic Qantas posters and even a 1940s tie which was worn (with much care) by Qantas executive manager of sales, marketing and distribution, Steve Limbrick.

The top achiever this year was Angela Kaluzyn from Skilled Travel in NSW, while the awards for the first time in 2015 also included separate Cruise Achievers categories, with the National Cruise Consultant of the Year award taken out by Kerri Page from helloworld Buderim.

The state winners included the one and only Jenny Cooper from Queanbeyan City Cruise & Travel (ACT), Angela Kaluzyn (NSW), Kirsten Simpson from helloworld Echuca (Vic), Baden Brown of helloworld Launceston (Tas), Gaynor Vantsant from Travel Focus International (WA), Jill Johansen of helloworld Mackay (Qld) and Sarah Phillis of Platinum Escape (SA).
