Visitor Information Centres are calling for passionate locals to share their love for the region with guests as volunteer ambassadors.
It comes following more than two years of record-breaking tourism visitation to the Bundaberg Region, and as holiday makers continue seek the region's extraordinary tourism experiences.
With the Visitor Information Centres welcoming around 25,000 guests every year, volunteer ambassadors provide support to the experience team by greeting visitors and assisting them with planning their time in the region.
They also help in sharing information on local tourism offerings, with an aim to increase visitation to local businesses and attractions.
The Bundaberg VIC, situated next to the iconic Bundaberg Rum Distillery, and the Childers VIC, located in the Childers main street, offer volunteer ambassadors an opportunity to discover behind the scenes of the tourism industry, with regular free day tours to experience the region's attractions and operators, in addition to full training.
Bundaberg Tourism’s Visitor Experience Manager Anna Maslen said passionate local volunteers were integral to the work done at the Visitor Information Centres.
“These members of the local community volunteer their time out of pure love for the region and share recommendations, stories of the area and insider tips to assist travellers in making the most of their time in the region,” she said.
“Our friendly team are motivated by the fresh outlook that comes with our volunteers, and we look forward to welcoming some new faces into the Visitor Information’s Centres.”
