FROM THE MAY­ORS DESK

Central and North Burnett Times - - VOICE OF THE BURNETT -

NAT­U­RALLY Beau­ti­ful North Bur­nett wel­comes trav­ellers to the re­gion to en­joy our en­vi­ron­ment and life­style.

There are a num­ber of pre­mier vis­it­ing sites for the re­gion in­clud­ing the range of recre­ational dams and at­trac­tions such as the RM Wil­liams Aus­tralian Bush Learn­ing Cen­tre.

Re­cently, the coun­cil com­pleted the nec­es­sary plan­ning re­quire­ments to al­low RV friendly sta­tus ve­hi­cles to stay overnight at the cen­tre.

The cen­tre con­tains a gallery, the Regi­nald Mur­ray (RM) Wil­liams dis­play and the vis­i­tor in­for­ma­tion cen­tre.

A coun­cil-owned car­a­van park also op­er­ates within Eidsvold which charges commercial rates.

The coun­cil has done some pre­lim­i­nary in­ves­ti­ga­tion to an RV friendly rest area in Monto but does not have ten­ure to the land.

The coun­cil has RV friendly sta­tus for five towns and be­lieves both reg­is­tered car­a­van parks and RV friendly ar­eas are im­por­tant as part of the over­all fab­ric of the self drive tourism area.

The coun­cil be­lieves that both reg­is­tered parks and RV friendly ar­eas ser­vices the dif­fer­ing needs of the trav­el­ling com­mu­nity.

The coun­cil will con­tinue to pro­mote tourism through­out the re­gion as one as­pect of our con­tin­ued Eco­nomic De­vel­op­ment.

- Mayor Don Waugh
