Learn­ing lessons from Nindigully

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

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.
