Shine a light on Childers

Isis Town and Country - - Life - By PETRA DE JONG

IN­SPIRED by the peo­ple I have met and the re­cent Childers G’Day En­joy Your Stay Project, I have started a new web­site aimed at high­light­ing the pos­i­tives in the re­gion and I want your help.

The new por­tal web­site Visit Childers is a re­sponse to what I have learnt about Childers in the past few months while I met peo­ple to share their sto­ries as a con­trib­u­tor for Com­mu­nity Cor­ner in the Isis Town & Coun­try.

With Visit Childers, I want to shine the spot­light on ev­ery­thing Childers has to of­fer in one site.

At a meet­ing hosted by Bund­aberg North Bur­nett Tourism in Childers last week, I was in­spired by speaker Steve Burns.

“Burn­sie” spoke pas­sion­ately about his Nindigully pub, west of St Ge­orge, and how he turned the re­mote pub into a des­ti­na­tion with a con­sid­er­able turnover.
