TOURISM should be ad­vanced and sup­ported through CQ as a sig­nif­i­cant part of the re­gion and a way to en­cour­age more peo­ple to the area, ac­cord­ing to Capella res­i­dent and coun­cil can­di­date Natalie Cur­tis. Mrs Cur­tis, whose fam­ily live in the area, said it was im­por­tant to pro­mote the re­gion and make it con­ve­nient for peo­ple to visit by pro­vid­ing free and easy-ac­cess camp­ing ar­eas, and also cheap or low-cost park­ing for trav­ellers where peo­ple could ac­cess the lo­cal ser­vices. “I’d like to see bet­ter use of rate dol­lars. We’ve got a small rate base and a large area to cover, so we need to make the most of ev­ery dol­lar we get.”
