Top outlook for tourism
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.”
