One of the true blue regional champions
ONE of the biggest champions of Mackay and Whitsunday tourism lives in a little rural town in Victoria between Shepparton and Bendigo called Rushworth.
Auto glazier Ben Norris grew up in Mackay but moved to Victoria about two years ago.
This year he brought his girlfriend to the Whitsundays and took a video and a few photos back with him to show his friends and family on what life was like in North Queensland.
His three-minute video starts with a quick flight and highlights some of the most beautiful places in the region including Whitehaven Beach, Dingo Beach and Cedar Creek Falls.
“It's (Dingo Beach) such a nice spot – you have the pub there right on the beach and then on the way back you stop at Cedar Creek Falls,” he said.
Mr Norris ended up spending so much time capturing his romantic getaway with his partner that he had about 475 videos and photos from the trip.
