Learning lessons from Nindigully
AWORKSHOP, G’day Enjoy Your Stay, was conducted by Bundaberg North Tourism and North Burnett Regional Council at the Coffee Pozzee at Biggenden.
The workshop talked of ways for business owners and staff to make visitors’ stay in town a pleasant experience, thus hopefully extending their stay and supporting our community.
Guest speaker was Steve Burns from the Nindigully Pub.
Steve outlined the events he has hosted that have put Nindigully “on the map” for tourists.
He also stressed that it was important for each town to have a point of difference. We already have the beautiful backdrop of Mt Walsh and surrounds, now it’s up to us to keep the tourists in town long enough to actually visit and experience these sights.
Queensland Rail has recently turned the keys over to North Burnett Regional Council for a parcel of land within the railway precinct.
Biggenden Chamber of Commerce hopes to collaborate with council to set up an RV overnight camping area on this land, which will be a real boost for the town.
Being situated in the centre of town and with the laundromat close by will enable visitors to stroll the streets and support businesses at their leisure.
You don’t have to be a business owner to become a member of the Chamber of Commerce so feel free to go along to the next meeting, which will be held at 5.30pm on Thursday, June 18 at the Commercial Hotel.
