Tourism Whitsundays – Are You A Member Yet?

With Bec Timmins

Hi, I’m Bec, the Tourism Whitsundays Member Services Coordinator.

My role is to help you get the most out of your membership with Tourism Whitsundays.  

Did you know that Tourism Whitsundays has four levels of membership for businesses to ensure no one misses out on an opportunity to be involved?

You can find our membership prospectus at

By joining Tourism Whitsundays, you have access to our monthly networking nights, marketing opportunities domestically and internationally.

You will also have support and advice from our team in all areas of marketing and PR, your brochures displayed in the Visitor Information Centre in Proserpine and the opportunity to load your product on our website which receives over one million unique visits each year.

There are many more benefits, but I find these are the most used out of all the ones we offer.

The other benefit is your eligibility to enter the annual Whitsundays Tourism Awards, open only to our members, the awards process gives you valuable insight into your business and the many components it takes to successfully build a tourism business.

Each week I’m on the road visiting members and businesses who would like to become members.

If you would like to discuss membership opportunities, please email me on
