Mackay Region Showcased in New Visitor Guide

Mackay Tourism is delighted to today launch the new 2019 Mackay Region Visitor Guide.

Each one of the 44 pages in the new publication showcases The Mackay Region’s abundance of spectacular nature based attractions and experiences.

Experiences such as Nature and Wildlife, Fishing and Boating and Local Flavours take centre stage in inspiring visitors to explore The Mackay Region.

Likewise, the region’s attractions including Cape Hillsborough, Isaac Inland, and the Northern Beaches, are also featured with dedicated pages highlighting bucket list experiences, maps and inspiring imagery.

In a boost to the recovery of Eungella after the bushfires, the front page features the famous tree arch along the Cedar Grove Track at Eungella National Park.

Forty-thousand copies of 2019 Mackay Region Guide have been printed and are available from the Mackay Region and Mackay Visitor Information Centres, as well over a 100 accredited Visitor Information Centres located throughout Queensland.

The 2019 Visitor Guide will also become the key publication to drive visitation at trade and travel shows, and will be present at major events, and will feature online and on social media.

General Manager of Mackay Tourism, Tas Webber, said the richness of content in the 2019 Visitor Guide reflects the growth of Mackay Region tourism.

“As evidenced by seven successive quarters of visitor growth, The Mackay Region is fast developing as a sought-after tourism destination”, he said.

Mr. Webber continued, “fitting our remarkable array of experiences and attractions into a single visitor guide gets harder each year, as there are more products to market to potential visitors than ever before”.

“I would like to thank our advertisers, content writers and photographers, who together have created a publication that we as a region, can be proud of” said Mr. Webber.

Mayor of Mackay Regional Council, Greg Williamson was very impressed with the new Visitor Guide and believes visitors will be too.

“Mackay locals and businesses can be confident in promoting the 2019 Mackay Region Visitor Guide to people across Queensland and the world,” Cr Williamson said.

“This visitor guide highlights a remarkably high standard of tourism products, destinations and events. The publication is sure to drive further growth and investment into our region’s tourism industry and local economy,” he said.

“I’d encourage anyone planning their next holiday to look at the unique and memorable experiences and stunning locations that the Mackay region has to offer.”

Confident the 2019 Mackay Region Visitor Guide will help reactivate tourism following the recent bushfires, is Platypus Lodge Restaurant Owner, Oskar Krobath.

“A new, outstanding visitor guide with our very own Cedar Grove tree arch on the front cover, is exactly the sort of thing needed to boost tourism to Eungella and help tourism operators recover from the bushfires”, he said.

Mt Krobath continued, “Being featured in the visitor guide means advertising to 40,000 readers across Queensland, all looking for inspiration for their next holiday”.

“It’s a credit to Mackay Tourism that all parts of the wonderful Mackay Region, from the reef, beaches, rainforests to coal fields, all feature and given a chance to shine and attract visitors”, said Mr. Krobath.

The 2019 Mackay Region Visitor Guide will be officially launched tonight at the Mackay Tourism Members Christmas party.
