ACA Conference Breakfast is for the Birds

September 5, 2018 MICE No Comments Email Email

Jaime Jackett, warden from the Broome Bird Observatory, will speak at the closing breakfast at the Australian Cruise Association annual conference being held next week in Broome

Each year, ACA organises a speaker from an organisation providing support for the local communities in which their Conference is being held.

“We have had some wonderful local speakers attend our Conferences who have been able to make an important connection between our delegates and the destination” said Jill Abel, CEO of the Association.  “These have included the Great Barrier Reef Foundation in Mooloolaba in 2017 and Orange Sky Laundry – a not for profit organisation supporting the homeless – in Sydney in 2016.”

The Broome Bird Observatory, now in its 30th year, facilitates and supports a range of research projects on migratory shorebirds and the local environment.  Their focus is on Roebuck Bay which is renowned internationally as being among the top five migratory shorebird destinations in the world. From here shorebirds embark on their long annual migration to northern Asia and Siberia.

They also run courses and tours to educate visitors about the area.  As such, the Observatory plays a key role in the Broome cruise industry taking guests on birdwatching excursions and showcasing Roebuck Bay from a shorebirds perspective.

It is unique experiences such as this in remote regional destinations that make for memorable holiday experiences for cruise passengers to Australia.

“Our Friday breakfasts are a wonderful finale to our conferences and help to inspire, motivate and educate our delegates leaving them with a greater understanding of the important contribution that cruising can make to a destination” continued Abel.
