Tourism officials in Abu Dhabi have outlined their plans to attract more Australian holidaymakers to the region.

The Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) has just opened an office in Sydney as part of its strategy to open up the market to people in Australia.

Mubarak Al Muhairi, director general of ADTA, said this has come about as a result of growing air traffic between the two locations.

As a result, the organisation is keen to tap into this market further and encourage even more Australians to visit Abu Dhabi.

Mr Al Muhairi commented: “Abu Dhabi is very much a new proposition for Australia travellers but one which has much to entice those noted for their love of nature, adventure and the great outdoors.”

The move could potentially stimulate further economic growth in the region, which in turn could enhance the appeal of property for sale in Abu Dhabi to foreign investors.

According to Peter Young of Sandcastles-Property.com, Abu Dhabi is currently its fastest-growing region for property investment in the United Arab Emirates.
