Dis­cover life’s best mo­ments out­doors

Warwick Daily News - South West Queensland Rural Weekly - - Column -

QUEENSLANDERS are be­ing en­cour­aged to cre­ate, share and re­mem­ber some of life’s best mo­ments while vis­it­ing the state’s unique parks and forests.

To high­light the amaz­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties our na­tional parks and forests have to of­fer, Min­is­ter for En­vi­ron­ment Leeanne Enoch said the Govern­ment has launched a new dig­i­tal ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign ti­tled Life’s Best Mo­ments.

“Queens­land is one of the most naturally di­verse places in the world, home to five World Her­itage Ar­eas and over 1300 na­tional parks, ma­rine parks, state forests and other pro­tected ar­eas,” Ms Enoch said.

“This cam­paign will help in­spire peo­ple to ‘Think Out­side’ and get ac­tive by do­ing things like hik­ing, moun­tain bik­ing, kayak­ing and snorkelling or sim­ply tak­ing in the great out­doors in Queens­land’s parks and forests.

“With 485 camp­ing ar­eas to choose from, our parks and forests of­fer camp­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to suit ev­ery­one – from re­mote camp sites with very few fa­cil­i­ties to camp­ing ar­eas fully equipped with toi­lets, show­ers and bar­be­cue ar­eas.

“This year is also the Year of Out­back Tourism, and it is the per­fect time to ex­plore our parks and forests that are in Queens­land’s unique out­back.

“A new easy-to-use web­site will take the heavy lift­ing out of plan­ning a camp­ing trip and will in­clude ev­ery­thing vis­i­tors need to know, need to take, and of­fer help­ful tips to have the best pos­si­ble camp­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.”

Ms Enoch said to cel­e­brate the cam­paign launch, Queens­land Parks and Wildlife Ser­vice (QPWS) would be of­fer­ing great prizes through its so­cial me­dia pages over the next four months.

“Vis­i­tors will be en­cour­aged to share their mem­o­ries and best mo­ments with #LifesBestMo­ments on the Queens­land Na­tional Parks Face­book and In­sta­gram.”
