Congratulations Rainbow Beach Horserides Tourism winner and Rainbow Getaway Holiday Apartments, Tourism finalist at the Gympie Chamber Business Awards: Iselan Von Zernichow, Heatley Gilmore, Helen Warburton, Jacqueline Soden, Karla Ralph, Andrew McCarthy and Michelle Gilmore
A hearty congratulations to Rainbow Beach Horserides, first for Tourism, taking home the trophy for the 2016 Gympie Chamber of Commerce Business Awards. Goomboorian farm Cooloola Berries was also awarded Business of the Year!
Rainbow Getaway Holiday Apartments were delighted to host their very first international tour group – all that hard work with the international ready program through Visit Sunshine Coast has started to reap rewards.
The group included farmers and a journalist from Sweden, they were touring farms across Eastern Australia, and stopped at Fraser Island for a couple of days. By all reports, the Karaoke across the road was a big hit with the group – many were slow to rise the next day.
Two accommodation businesses were listed in Trivago’s top rated – great to put Rainbow Beach on the map!
Destination Gympie Region report Rainbow Beach has received fantastic coverage with both online and print. Andrew Saunders says, “The domestic and international promotion of the region has been incredible when you consider the competition and budgets the region is up against.”
Newsreader, Kay McGrath, travelled on the Great Beach Drive last month, stayed overnight at Plantation Resort, enjoyed dinner at Arco’s, kayaked with dolphins and managed a horse ride! It will be cut into two shows for Queensland Weekender and Great South East.
Australia’s Nature Coast campaigns continue across the world – in Italy, Germany, France, UK and Singapore.
