With the current challenges facing our tourism industry and uncertainty on what the next 3 -12 months will look like for global travel, it’s now more than ever that we need to band together as Team Bundaberg, to work strategically, to market collectively and to unite as a single voice for the destination.

With the assistance of our partners at QTIC and TEQ, 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.

To save you time, we have collated a range of resources for you below and are updating with available information daily. If there is anything that we’ve missed, let us know!

To assist you with COVID Safe Planning within your business, we have created this webpage outlining the steps required for Industry COVID SAFE Plans and COVID Safe Checklists in line with Stage 3. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team if there is anything you need. We are in this together.
