Tourism Whitsundays’ Business Highlight

Welcome to the first in a bi-monthly series of Business Highlights, introducing members of Tourism Whitsundays and showcasing the exceptional local businesses we have operating here in the region.

Tourism Whitsundays are a dedicated marketing agency that promotes the region and their members on every level – from international and national campaigns to markets right here in the Whitsundays.

Tourism Whitsundays CEO Rick Hamilton said that partnering with Whitsunday Life enables both entities to work together on features such as this, to highlight members to locals and visitors alike.

“It also helps connect members with Whitsunday Life to help share their stories with the local community,” he explained.

“It's a win win for everyone and helps us significantly in communicating with our local regions.”
