2012 RWTA NATIONAL CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION

2012 RWTA National Conference and Exhibition Program

Half an hour north of Byron Bay, through the cane fields of northern New South Wales to the Tweed Coast, is a unique conference and event destination--SALT--an emporium of venues and group possibilities across two neighbouring world-class resorts. SALT has a tropical air and a modern Australian feel. Its resorts, with lagoon and tropical pools and two pillarless ballrooms surround a coastal village at the edge of an unspoilt beach. Within the village are six distinctive restaurants and bars, including the renowned Season. Nearby, famous Golden Door Spa treatments can be included in your plans.

The modern Australian beach village of Kingscliff with its cafes and shops is just a leisurely walk away. As is one of the region's drawcards--SALT beach--a spectacular stretch of dune-fringed beach patrolled 365 days a year. The Tweed Coast Hinterland, with its volcanic mountain terrain, houses World Heritage Listed Mt Warning National Park--the first point on the Australian mainland to be touched by sunrise. The Mount Warning cauldron is an easy 45-minute drive east of SALT. Byron Bay, with its popular beach, cafe and market culture, is a half hour drive south. To the north, all the fun and excitement of the Gold Coast and Surfer's Paradise is just a 40-minute drive away. And SALT is readily accessed through nearby airports:

  • 20 minutes south of the Gold Coast Airport
  • 90 minutes south of Brisbane Airport
  • 60 minutes north of Ballina Airport
