Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

THERE will be a so­cial me­dia spot­light on the Whit­sun­days this week with an “in­stameet”.

Tourism and Events Queens­land is en­cour­ag­ing vis­i­tors and lo­cals in the Whit­sun­days to take part in the event this Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 4.

The regis­tered spots for tak­ing part are Abell Point Ma­rina, the Bowen Cup and Day­dream is­land.

It is a so­cial me­dia event which aims to be­come the world’s big­gest ‘In­stameet’ in or­der to showcase the re­gion.

There are 69 lo­ca­tions in Queens­land – and three of them are right here in the Whit­sun­days.

Be­ing a long week­end, it is hoped many vis­i­tors will take part in this event.

The idea is to share your images of our re­gion. Given the ever in­creas­ing power of so­cial me­dia, this is a great way to pro­mote the Whit­sun­days to the world.

The in­stameet is be­ing held on Day­dream Is­land at 10am, the Bowen Races from 12.30pm and Abell Point Ma­rina from 5pm.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the Queens­land In­stameet and the regis­tered events in the Whit­sun­days visit www.queens­land.com/in­stameet.

Mean­while, there is a story on page 5 to­day about the Whit­sun­days be­ing named the num­ber two des­ti­na­tion in Aus­tralia in a con­sumer poll by a company called Ex­pe­ri­ence Oz.

This is great news for the re­gion as it con­tin­ues to pro­mote the area as a great place to visit.

Have a happy long week­end.
