FRONTLINE TOURIST VOLUNTEERS FOR BIGGENDEN
A GROUP of enthusiastic tourism minded Biggenden residents met last week at the memorial hall to discuss an upcoming project.
They were joined by North Burnett Regional Councillor Robbie Radel, RM Williams Bush Learning Centre’s Denese Temu and NBRC Community Development officer Melinda Jones for an enjoyable gathering of information.
The North Burnett Regional Council acknowledges volunteer support and is encouraging input in ways to improve tourism across the region.
Some of the items discussed included “Ask Me, I am a Local”. Badges will be supplied by the NBRC for front-line volunteers to wear and be recognised by both locals and visiting tourists to Biggenden.
Front-line volunteers will be able to answer questions about tourism in the area and send travellers to tourist information centres. Here they can obtain brochures, maps and make their visits a friendly experience.
Front-line volunteers were asked if they would compile lists of historic or sites of interest in the Biggenden region not identified by signage.
Community members can take part by leaving any information at The Den Community Craft Shop opposite Beiers Park.
Regional Tourism Family Tours will provide a great benefit to the local Front-line Volunteers by helping them to become more familiar with the history and attractions surrounding Biggenden and also learning what other towns in the beautiful North Burnett Shire proudly offer.
Biggenden will be the first of the Family Tours and volunteers are excited to be part of this event to get under way in January.
