  3. New cloning function. You are now able to clone accommodation types, tour services and transport types. Simply click ’MORE...’ in the top right-hand corner of your listing and select ‘clone service.’

ATDW Workshop - Gippsland Tourism Forum

We were recently invited to Destination Gippsland's Tourism Forum to speak to tourism operators, visitor centre staff and local council about the benefits of listing on the ATDW.

As part of the Gippsland rebrand, a new dedicated consumer site will launch soon, powered by ATDW listings. 

Now is the time for Gippsland businesses and event organisers to create or update their listing in order have a presence on this new website (as well as visitvictoria.com).

Weibo and Wechat

If your business or event has a presence on either Weibo or Wechat, you can now add it to your ATDW listing.

These platforms can allow you to communicate with Chinese visitors to Victoria and also to the local Chinese community. 

To add either of these accounts to your ATDW listing, log in to ATDW-online and paste your links to the Social Media section of your listing.
