One of the true blue re­gional cham­pi­ons

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

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.
