Tourism name change

BRISBANE Valley Tourism Association Inc. has voted to undergo a name change to Somerset Regional Tourism Association Inc.

This was voted upon at a special meeting at the Association's networking night held at Bellview Homestead at Coominya on Tuesday, June 2.

Representatives from Brisbane Marketing , Mayor Lehmann, Crs Pearce and Bechly, Council officers and Association members were most impressed and suitably hosted by owners John and Laurel Dingle.

The Association is in the throws of preparing Tourism Fact Sheets to be placed on the Association's website, for consideration to be placed on the Council's website and placement in the Visitor Information Centres (VICs) throughout the Somerset Region.

President Dave McEvoy said that visitors to the region would benefit by having a “ready to run” list of things to do and see.

These fact sheets would provide visitors with instant information as to what they could do on any given day in the region.

“This will not replace researching through a wealth of information on the web or at the VICs, but rather these sheets would provide visitors with a “quick fix” itinerary of tourism establishments in our region,” Mr McEvoy said.

Several fact sheets will be produced so that return visitations can showcase different tourism product and experiences.

The association encourages any non members to join within the next two months to take advantage of this great tourism initiative.

Contact the secretary Dawn Oliver by emailing Dawn.Myatoozee@bigpond.com for membership details and low joining fees.
