Coolan­gatta tops

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

■ THE rise and rise of Coolan­gatta as a des­ti­na­tion of choice for short breaks by do­mes­tic tourists has seen it earn a top five rank­ing with a lead­ing Aus­tralia on­line travel site.

In a sur­vey con­ducted by Wo­tif.com for a re­port ti­tled Travel Your­self Bet­ter, it found that most Aus­tralians felt more recharged by tak­ing nu­mer­ous “mini breaks” over the year rather than wait­ing for one long, lengthy hol­i­day. Wo­tif asked for the top 10 des­ti­na­tions un­der $200 per night for a short break stay with Coolan­gatta com­ing in at num­ber five.

The lead­ing des­ti­na­tion was Cairns, fol­lowed by Launce­s­ton, Apollo Bay, Coffs Har­bour and then Coolan­gatta. Wo­tif’s Di­rec­tor of brand mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Amanda Behre said sev­eral fac­tors worked in Coolan­gatta’s favour when it came to ap­peal­ing to tourists look­ing to “recharge the bat­ter­ies”, in­clud­ing its prox­im­ity to the Gold Coast Air­port and con­ve­nience of beaches, shops, restau­rants and en­ter­tain­ment.
