Bundaberg Tourism is encouraging the community to have a say on the latest Destination Management Plan tourism strategy that aims to take the region into the future.
Chairman Ross Peddlesden said tourism was a major driver of the region's economy and there would be plenty of opportunities to showcase Bundaberg across the next decade.
“As we look ahead to the next 10 years, there are many opportunities on the horizon, not least of all the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, putting Queensland as a destination on the world stage,” he said.
“As the reputation and offering of the Bundaberg Region continues to grow, it is vital that we have broad response from right across the region into this valuable piece of work for the future of Bundaberg as a destination.
“A healthy and sustainable tourism industry supports a prosperous economy and can influence economic, social and environmental outcomes for the region.”
Bundaberg Tourism CEO, Katherine Reid said the opportunities that the tourism industry generated had wide-reaching impacts for the entire community.
“With the world evolving rapidly since the major disruptions of COVID, there is untapped opportunity for our region as we boom as both a desirable leisure destination and an exciting place to live and work,” she said.
“We are calling on the entire community to help us co-design a visionary and progressive strategy for the future of the Bundaberg Region, and would really value your input into the survey”.
A survey has been made available to gather insights and sentiments for the Bundaberg Region as a destination, and its future.
