Out­back aids re­build

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

A NEW re­port on the power of the Out­back to at­tract tourists to Queens­land will be used to help re­build the in­dus­try af­ter re­cent dis­as­ters.

The re­port, by Tourism Re­search Aus­tralia, said tourists love what they find in out­back Queens­land but aren’t aware of how much is on of­fer.

Queens­land Tourism Min­is­ter Jan Jar­rett said the re­search pro­ject found vis­i­tors dis­cov­ered more than they ex­pected and viewed Queens­land’s out­back as an ex­pe­ri­ence dif­fer­ent to sim­i­lar re­gions in other parts of Aus­tralia.

Fed­eral Min­is­ter As­sist­ing on Tourism, Sen­a­tor Nick Sherry, said lo­ca­tions such as The Stock­man’s Hall of Fame and the Qantas Founders Mu­seum were big draw­cards.
