In­ter­est­ing ideas are afoot for re­gion’s tourism

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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!
