The day has finally arrived for 60 of Australia’s top travel agents who have touched down in San Francisco for Qantas Holidays’ Race Around Northern California famil this week.


Named after iconic Northern Californian sporting teams the 4 groups for this year’s Race Around are The Kings, The Warriors, 49ers and The Giants. Showing their team spirit, the 60 excited agents were sporting their special team jackets when they arrived in San Francisco.

The Race Around teams travelled on QF73 to San Francisco and will now visit iconic locations including Napa Valley, Sonoma, North Lake Tahoe, South Lake Tahoe, Yosemite and Sacramento before crossing the finish line and attending a glitzy, gala dinner together in San Francisco on 20th March.

Fiona Dalton, Qantas Holidays’ Head of Sales says the Race Around 2016 in Northern California is anticipated to be a huge success.

“We are so excited to have 60 of Australia’s best travel agents touch down in Northern California today. What a great way to celebrate Qantas recently recommencing daily flights from Sydney to San Francisco. We look forward to showcasing what a great holiday destination San Francisco and the wider Northern California is for Aussie travellers,” says Fiona Dalton, Qantas Holidays Head of Sales.

“We are also so thankful for the incredible support of the Northern Californian tourism boards who have helped us organise some amazing activities for our Race Around 2016 teams. Good luck to each of our Race Around teams. We hope you enjoy the week and we look forward to celebrating with you all back in San Francisco on the weekend!”
