New faces join Great In­land Way

Balonne Beacon - - NEWS -

THE Great In­land Way Com­mit­tee has wel­comed in its new ex­ec­u­tive, with mem­bers for the tourism gate­way orig­i­nat­ing from across the War­rego.

The com­mit­tee works to main­tain the Great In­land Way, a road route that trav­els from Syd­ney through south­west Queens­land, up into Cook­town.

The route is pop­u­lar with tourists from the south, brin­ing thou­sands of peo­ple into Queens­land each year.

“It was great to be able to have a meet­ing face to face with ev­ery­one from the dif­fer­ent re­gions,” new com­mit­tee chair Puddy Chan­dler said.

“The whole idea of the com­mit­tee is to pro­mote the drive trail, through brochures and sig­nage. Ev­ery town on the drive trail is in­vited to be a mem­ber, as it’s all about con­nec­tions and giv­ing peo­ple a map.

“We also have a Face­book page where towns can add pho­tos so trav­ellers can see what is along the route.”

St Ge­orge’s Robyn Furnhmeis­ter is the new vice-pres­i­dent, Wendy New­man is the sec­re­tary and Den­nis Daly will take over as trea­surer.

AGM MEET: Jus­tine Miller, Peter Grigg, Puddy Chan­dler, Den­nis Daly and Wendy New­man.
