Burnett tourism benefits from high profile match
RUGBY LEAGUE: The Intrust Super Cup is already making its mark on the Burnett, with hotels and caravan parks completely booked out ahead of the game this weekend.
Mundubbera Tigers president Cameron MacDonald said a lot of people had indicated they planned to attend.
“I’ve heard that there is a lot of people from neighbouring towns from the South Burnett, Bundaberg, Maryborough who will be in attendance,” MacDonald said.
“We’ve also got eight Men of League representatives from the Fraser Coast who will be helping us prepare for the day. “We’ve got two canteens and two bars that will be open on the day.”
The games will help showcase the North Burnett to a bigger audience. Life member for the Mundubbera Tigers Gavin Ford said the games would bring good investment to the region.
“I think being a televised game, it’s good advertisement for our area and hopefully we can showcase to the visitors what a friendly town Mundubbera is and what it’s well known for,” Ford said.
Mundubbera Bowls Club will host a meet and greet on Saturday night, sure to pack the venue. Three Rivers Caravan Park in Mundubbera is completely booked out and owner Sherrie Breitkopf said it’s a great way of keeping locals in business.
“It’s a great way to bring new visitors to our region and to showcase the wonderful town and community that we have,” Breitkopf said.
“We’ve got many bookings for the weekend which is fantastic and it’d be nice to have a few rooms up our sleeve.
“The ones who are coming to the football are staying more than one night which helps out the local businesses and gives back to the region.” Most of the hotels and motels are completely booked out, with some spare rooms available on Sunday night.”
