#VisitGoondiwindiRegion - the new campaign is live!

« Back

Goondiwindi Regional Council has unveiled a new campaign to promote the region as a tourism destination and encourage visitors to #VisitGoondiwindiRegion.

The campaign will feature new promotional photography and marketing to highlight destinations and activities from across the Goondiwindi region. It will be rolled out over the coming weeks on Facebook and Instagram as part of Council’s COVID-19 Community and Economic Support package to support local tourism operators and related businesses.

Mayor of the Goondiwindi region the Honourable Lawrence Springborg AM said the campaign was well-timed to attract new visitors to the region following the news that the Queensland borders will partially re-open from 10 July.

“Right now is an excellent opportunity for the Goondiwindi region’s tourism, as Queenslanders have been given the go-ahead to get on the road and our borders will soon be open to most other states,” Cr Springborg said.

“Our region has so much to offer potential visitors and the new campaign will invite them to find out for themselves why we’re known as ‘Regional Australia at its best’. We’ll be showcasing highlights from right across the region to hopefully inspire their next trip here – whether it’s to sample some gourmet local produce, experience real country hospitality or discover the newly-painted GrainCorp Silos at Yelarbon on the national silo art trail.”

Council’s campaign will complement the Queensland Government’s new tourism campaign, ‘Queensland, you’re Good to Go!’, and the Goondiwindi Chamber of Commerce’s campaign 'Come Say Hi', which encourages locals to invite their friends and families to come out during the school holidays and enjoy the many attractions and local shopping our region has to offer.

Cr Springborg is also asking residents and businesses to support the campaign by inviting friends and family to the region for their next road trip or reunion.

“We know from the data that a large part of our region’s visitor economy isn’t just your average tourist, it’s the friends and family of locals who come to the region to visit. Going forward, we can all support our tourism operators and related businesses by inviting friends and family to the region for their next getaway,” the Mayor said.

“Our tourism operators and related businesses have really taken the brunt of the impact in the last few months, and the new campaign is targeted to support those businesses and get our visitor economy back on its feet and ready to thrive,” the Mayor said.
