Tourism operators in the Bundaberg Region are on show as part of a Seize the Days campaign offering up tempting holiday deals and opportunities to share in Queensland’s great lifestyle while supporting more secure jobs.
The Tourism and Events Queensland campaign, launched in August, has recently recorded more than 500 deals on visitor experiences, flights and places to stay through the Queensland.com website.
The Point Resort Bargara, Hinkler Hall of Aviation, the Bundaberg Rum Visitor Experience and the Bundaberg Barrel are just some of the local hotspots enticing visitors with a range of travel deals.
Bundaberg Tourism's Trade and Industry Development Executive Loni Hammond said it was great news for the whole region.
“The presence Bundaberg has in the Seize the Day Campaign is thanks to our amazing members contributing content and deals,” she said.
“Members submitting a deal for the campaign are not the only ones to benefit from the incredible reach of TEQ's multi-million-dollar campaign, by having members participate in the campaign, the Bundaberg destination also receives increased exposure, providing tangible value to other local tourism operators and local businesses.
“We would love to see more members and tourism operators involved in these types of opportunities, as the more operators involved the more exposure the region will receive.”
Mayor Jack Dempsey said the campaign was a great opportunity to showcase what was on offer locally to those thinking about travelling to the Bundaberg Region.
“From our beaches to our parks, fantastic facilities, great weather and friendly people, the region really has everything to offer visitors,” he said.
“With the weather getting warmer, now is the perfect time to book into the Bundaberg Region.”
Tourism Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said the Seize the Days tourism campaign was designed to encourage more people to take a Queensland holiday before Christmas.
“Seize the Days is all about irresistible deals on visitor experiences, accommodation and flights to turn holiday dreaming into bookings,” he said.
“It’s already October and that means the clock is running down on 2022 to experience more of Queensland’s great lifestyle before the start of the peak Christmas and New Year holiday season.
“A recent YouGov poll found 2022 has been tough with more than 11 million Australians feeling they haven’t made the most of the year, 43 per cent are tired and more than a third feel stressed.
“It’s absolutely clear Australians should Seize the Days and grab a great deal on a world-class Queensland holiday experience.”
Seize the Days is on track to deliver 6.7 million visitor nights and $4.4 billion for Queensland’s visitor economy.
