A Vibrant And Bold Future For Bundaberg

Have Your Say!

As we look towards 2032 and the possibilities for the Bundaberg Region, the Board and stakeholders of Bundaberg Tourism invite the regional community to join the tourism industry in designing the new Destination Management Plan tourism strategy that will take the region into the future.

The new Destination Management Plan (2022-2032) needs to be bold, future-focused and vibrant, and broad input from across all sectors of the community is incredibly important. Tourism is a major driver to the region economy and guests to the region drive economic benefits well beyond the operators and attractions traditionally associated with the tourism industry.

A wide variety of ideas and energy will contribute to new ways the tourism and business community can drive demand and grow supply, supported by a highly capable, passionate and strategic tourism ecosystem.

Bundaberg Tourism Chairman, Ross Peddlesden said “As we look ahead to the next 10 years, there are many opportunities on the horizon, not least of all the Brisbane 2032 Olympic & Paralympic Games, putting Queensland as a destinatio0n on the world stage. As the reputation and offering of the Bundaberg region continues to grow, it is vital that we have broad response from right across the region into this valuable piece of work for the future of Bundaberg as a destination. A healthy and sustainable tourism industry, supports a prosperous economy and can influence economic, social and environmental outcomes for the region.”

Bundaberg Tourism CEO, Katherine Reid adds “The opportunities that the tourism industry generates have wide-reaching impacts for the entire community, and with the world evolving rapidly since the major disruptions of COVID, there is untapped opportunity for our region as we boom as both a desirable leisure destination and an exciting place to live and work. We are calling on the entire community to help us co-design a visionary and progressive strategy for the future of the Bundaberg Region, and would really value your input into the survey”.

Interested community members can contribute to the DMP Survey (see link below) which closes in mid August, and stakeholder workshops will be held over the coming months before the Plan is completed.
