Promoting local products at tourist information centre
THE Whitsunday Region Information Centre now features ‘Made in the Whitsundays’ - an exhibit of local products available to purchase.
The exhibit is part of Whitsunday Marketing and Development Limited (WMDL) initiative to showcase what the region has to offer.
It currently features products from Whitsunday Myrtle, Whitsunday Organic Products and Whitsunday Gold Coffee but is open to local people wanting to share or sell their arts and craft or products.
Whitsunday Organic Products have a range of muesli available, some with wolfberry and Goji and a nut mix.
Whitsunday Organic Products director Janet Keppke is excited to share her products with locals and visitors at the information centre.
“I think we need to tell people [of the] quality of products we can produce here.”
“Some of the product here is unique to area and unique to Australia,” she said.
Whitsunday Myrtle is passionate about the amazing properties that the Myr- tle plant offers and has a range of body, spa and face bars to buy. Whitsunday Myrtle owner and director Grace Evans said the WMDL initiative will bring locals back to the information centre.
Whitsundays Marketing and Development Limited Chief Executive Officer Danial Rochford said it’s a new way to show off the products the region was producing.
“Here in the Whitsundays we are very proud of our natural landscapes and unique lifestyle but we also need to be proud of our local community and the beautiful art, crafts and products created right here in the Whitsundays,” he said.

Tori Frobish from Whitsunday Marketing and Development Limited, Grace Evans from Whitsunday Myrtle and Janet Keppke look forward to selling local products at the Whitsunday Region Information Centre.
