BLUE skies and sun­shine are head­ing our way and the fore­cast is for a bumper tourism sea­son.

Weatherzone me­te­o­rol­o­gist Ben Domensino said La Nina had fin­ished and El Nino had not yet re­turned.

He said it should see Queens­land’s weather head­ing back to the hot days and af­ter­noon thun­der­storms that have be­come a dis­tant mem­ory.

Tourism Queens­land act­ing chief Leanne Cod­ding­ton said the up­com­ing fore­cast for sum­mer would en­cour­age tourism.

“There are lots of hid­den se­crets or gems,” she said. “And peo­ple will be seek­ing out the Bur­nett as a des­ti­na­tion to ‘breathe in that coun­try air’.”

Bun­der­berg North Bur­nett Tourism gen­eral man­ager Rick Matkowski said with road­works on the BruceHwy this hol­i­day sea­son, the Coun­try Way “would be a great al­ter­na­tive”.

“The weather im­pacts on peo­ple’s in­cli­na­tion to travel north,” Mr Matkowski said. “And in­land ar­eas like the Bur­nett do ben­e­fit.”
