Region shares its number one tourism attraction with global audience
It's one of the natural wonders of the world and brings tourists from all over the globe to TNQ, and now people who are interested in what's happening on the Great Barrier Reef can get monthly updates on the renowned World Heritage area through the newly launched Reef Chat newsletter.
The Tourism Tropical North Queensland initiative is designed to give people up-to-date information on the people, places and science of the Reef with chief executive officer Pip Close saying media, travel agents and travellers were always asking about the natural wonder.
“This monthly newsletter should help meet that demand and introduce people around the world to the thousands of stories the Great Barrier Reef holds,” she said.
“The first newsletter has been sent to our members and trade partners and we hope they will forward it to their databases to help more people to learn about the Great Barrier Reef.
“We encourage the public to see the newsletter and subscribe to future editions.
“The Great Barrier Reef is the number one drawcard for TNQ and our operators are passionate about sharing this World Heritage area with the world.
“An extraordinary number of people from school children to scientists are doing their bit for the Great Barrier Reef both on the land and in the water and their stories are an inspiration for people who care about the Reef.
“We want to keep the conversation about the Great Barrier Reef going and encourage people around the world to be knowledgeable advocates for this beautiful and diverse ecosystem.”
