Hol­i­days busy for tourism in­dus­try

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WITH AN­ZAC day to­mor­row and Easter last weekend, the ex­tra pub­lic hol­i­days have paid div­i­dends for the Whit­sun­day tourism in­dus­try.

We have also been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing ex­cel­lent weather and this Easter has been one of the best in the last five years, ac­cord­ing to Whit­sun­days Mar­ket­ing and De­vel­op­ment CEO, Mr Da­nial Rochford.

“Dur­ing the course of the weekend, we saw no va­cancy signs right across the whole of the re­gion.

“With the weather Gods shin­ing on us and the qual­ity of our lo­cal tourism oper­a­tors this Easter has been a ma­jor suc­cess, Mr Rochford said.

“We are also reporting a lot of vis­i­tors stay­ing for longer stays as well as con­tin­u­ing their hol­i­day through to the AN­ZAC Day long weekend.

“What this means is a mas­sive in­jec­tion of money - in the tens of mil­lions into our lo­cal econ­omy.”
