Interesting ideas are afoot for region’s tourism
IT HAS been a busy few weeks at the Tourism Whitsundays office, with planning meetings and industry engagement taking place before we finalise our marketing plans for the year.
The team recently visited Bowen to sit down with Bowen Tourism and Business and discuss strategies and ideas.
After a productive day of brainstorming and networking with our Bowen members, the team has deve- loped an action plan for Bowen, which is currently being reviewed.
Tourism Whitsundays held industry segment meetings last week with interested members of the community, covering a range of key segments to target such as aquatic playground (sailing, bareboating, snorkelling and diving, the Great Barrier Reef), weddings, cruise, youth & adventure, drive and education (Great Barrier Reef conservation education, working with schools and other education facilities).
Some very interesting conversations and ideas have been generated through these meetings, and Tou- rism Whitsundays would like to thank everyone who attended for their participation and enthusiasm.
There will be a number of famils in the Whitsunday region over the next few weeks, with a journalist from the United Kingdom experiencing the Great Barrier Reef with Cruise Whitsundays and the conservation efforts of our local tourism operators.
Tourism Whitsundays will be hosting a delegation from the Tou- rism and Events Queensland’s famil team, who co-ordinate the media and trade famils across destinations in Queensland, to experience the latest offerings in the Whitsundays.
If you’re looking for some excitement this weekend, the Bowen Offshore Superboats are roaring into Edgecombe Bay and the Bowen Foreshore on July 23, with free community events including boat races, night markets and the brand new Trans-Tasman Challenge!
