The travel and tourism sector comprises many different industries and sub-industries, including services such as retail travel, currency exchange, tour operators and tour wholesalers. It also covers passenger transport including coach, aviation, rail and cruising and visitor attractions such as museums, theme parks, zoos and heritage sites.
The Macarthur and Wollondilly regions are in an ideal position to leverage opportunities in the tourism and hospitality industry, all thanks to construction of the Western Sydney Airport and Aerotropolis.
With so many tourist attractions and experiences located in close proximity to one another, employment demands in this field are expected to increase due to the increased accessibility for inbound visitors.
Our vocational training helps you develop strong business management and communication skills, broadening your job prospects.
