Po­ten­tial lies in horse and ex­treme sport events

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

SPORTS lovers hold big po­ten­tial for the North Bur­nett tourism mar­ket.

North Bur­nett Re­gional coun­cil­lors be­lieve a big sports event could bring a huge boost to the econ­omy.

“We should err to­wards horse sports and ex­treme sports, I think we are a prime lo­ca­tion and have in­fra­struc­ture for both these types of events,” Cr Faye Whe­lan said.

“With all our lakes, es­carp­ments and na­tional parks, ex­treme events like the Tough Mud­der is an area we could def­i­nitely tap into more.”

A fo­rum to be hosted by the Queens­land Out­door Recre­ation Fed­er­a­tion at 3.30pm on Au­gust 7 at Eidsvold’s RM Wil­liams Cen­tre will be a great op­por­tu­nity for lo­cals to have their say on the fu­ture of out­door sports in the North Bur­nett.
