Grow Your Business

We’re For Tourism

We can only deliver on our action plans with the support and buy-in of the tourism industry. The opportunities we offer and programs we run are exclusive to members.

Membership is a vital part of our structure. It provides a resource base for us to implement key activities to drive tourism forward in the region. In return, members are joining a progressive and innovative team operating in an exciting region with access to a supportive staff who can advocate and provide expertise and advice as required.


What’s In It For You?

• Showcase your business through our Visitor Information Centre network – including referrals by our legendary volunteers!

• Join in on regional marketing campaigns targeting local, Australian and international travellers.

• Meet our team, get first-hand advice and develop relationships with other operators at our networking events and seminars.

Build your team capacity with our professional development programs and digital support to grow skills, confidence and impact.

• Our public relations activities, media familiarisations, editorial features, blog articles and social media mentions are exclusive to members.

• We’ll keep you up to date with all the best / most important / really insightful stuff through our corporate communications.

• If your business is a visitor experience we’ll give you a profile in the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse so you’ll be featured on local, regional, state and national visitor websites. (You’d normally pay $250 for that!)

• If you’re a business servicing the tourism industry, we can help you make connections with our operators through our corporate communications.
