The return of The Lion King, the world premiere of Strictly Ballroom – The Musical, the opening of the Major League Baseball series and Australia’s largest annual national Indigenous arts and cultural festival, Monster Jam and Corroboree Sydney, are just some of the events that NSW has secured over the next 10 months.
Minister for Tourism and Major Events George Souris said, “Destination NSW estimates the Sydney and NSW Events Calendar will inject more than $500 million into the NSW economy from visitor expenditure.
“From the highly-anticipated return of The Lion King to Sydney’s world-renowned New Year’s Eve fireworks, the RAN International Fleet Review Sydney, BMW Sydney Carnival, Tamworth Country Music Festival, 2014 Toyota IRONMAN Australia in Port Macquarie and the Deni Ute Muster in Deniliquin, there is something for everyone across every location and season in NSW.
“The number of regional events are particularly impressive this year and an important contributor to regional tourism. These events attract visitors from across the state, Australia and overseas and give visitors a unique perspective on some of NSW’s rich network of regional towns”
