From the CEO

It is now, more than ever, that we need to pull together and support each other.  In these uncertain times, with the situation evolving on a daily basis, it is easy to become overwhelmed and anxious with the flow of information.  To save you time in searching, we have collated a range of COVID-19 links, business support and information resources for you on a dedicated landing page, located here: We are updating this with available information daily. 

Please let us know if there is anything you feel that we’ve missed.   

With the assistance of our partners at QTIC, we are taking every opportunity to advocate for support for the industry, so please continue to feed information through to us about the effects on your business. 

If you haven’t already completed the survey that we sent out on Monday, we would appreciate you taking a moment to do so.  This information assists us in providing accurate information to government on impacts being felt by the tourism and hospitality industry due to Coronavirus.  You can access the short survey here: survey.  These results will remain commercial in confidence and will be collated to develop a collective response on behalf of the Bundaberg Region. 

If you didn’t see it in our newsletter send on Friday, our team have developed Front of House Signage for our Visitor Information Centres, and you are most welcome to download and print for your own businesses. It’s a little personal hygiene reminder for people, with the hope to minimise risk and the spread of infection.

Not only will we be updating our website regularly, but we will also maintain constant contact with you via our industry Facebook page here:  as well as via email.

For your information, I have pasted below an update email from Tourism Australia Managing Director, Phillipa Harrison.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team if there is anything you need.      

We are in this together.
