Tourism plays an important role here
TOURISM is always a big focus for many regions in the country and the North Burnett is no exception.
Our Mundubbera journalist has covered a story about the influx of grey nomads and other travellers into the region with the change of season, to get some more insight into what brings them to the North Burnett.
As well as the beginning of the new season, the Heartland Festival is coming up within weeks and is another beacon of what tourism means to the North Burnett.
The Heartland Festival aims to showcase everything great about the North Burnett, from the locally made products to the freshly grown produce.
Tourism, including the working backpackers, brings with it an influx of money for the local economy, which can’t be overstated.
Country racing in the North Burnett has always proven popular and the Gayndah Races, coming up this weekend, always attracts a large contingent of people from outside the region.
This weekend will be the same I’m sure.
The Gayndah Heritage Rail Trail has opened at the perfect time as it aims to give those very same travellers a new avenue with which to see the natural and historical beauty of the region.
Tourism is a hallmark of Queensland and the North Burnett continues to attract more of it with each passing year.
