Team members from Tourism Noosa and the Noosa Council visited various Noosa hinterland villages last week connecting with the community.
The Hinterland Roadshow, a joint initiative between Tourism Noosa and Noosa Council is a seasonal update with over 100 members of the community attending one of the updates held in Kin Kin, Pomona and Cooroy.
Tourism Noosa CEO Melanie Anderson said it was her first time attending the hinterland roadshow and it was great to see how passionate the community was about their various villages.
“It was the perfect opportunity for our organisation to share news on our new strategic plan being developed for the next three years as well as updates on our Noosa Country Drive initiative amongst other news,” Ms Anderson said.
Noosa Council’s Director of Environment and Sustainable Development Kim Rawlings said the sessions are great opportunity to connect and engage with Hinterland residents.
“This provides us with a chance to promote and raise awareness of a number of key initiatives,” she said.
“The Hinterland has many stunning assets and these sessions are an opportunity for residents to provide input into how to enhance and further promote the area.”
Martin Duncan from Country Noosa attended the events and said there was so much happening.
“Very excited to see the Tourism Noosa and Noosa Council teams out in Kin Kin, Pomona and Cooroy giving updates on potential events in the hinterland and across Noosa, an update on the Biosphere campaign, Noosa Country Drive and the Noosa Trail Masterplan,” Mr Duncan said.
Danae and Nick Barnes from Noosa Eco Retreat said, “As newcomers to the tourism industry it was so wonderful to hear face-to-face from the passionate Tourism Noosa and Noosa Council teams about the huge pipeline of activity and opportunities for Noosa’s beautiful hinterland.”
