FROM THE MAYORS DESK
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.
