Whitsundays On Show In Townsville

The Whitsundays was on show at the Townsville Expo last weekend.

Three team members from Bowen Tourism and Business and a representative from Tourism Whitsundays all attended the expo, along with several Whitsunday operators.

Manager of Bowen Tourism and Business, Leanne Abernethy said all expos and trade shows were a great way to showcase what we have to offer in the region.

“We spoke to thousands of people who were interested in visiting our piece of paradise,” she said.

“Growing the drive market is a very important part of what we do.

“We were able to provide people from Townsville and surrounds with information about Bowen, Collinsville, Airlie Beach and Proserpine.”

The expo is held annually and is the region’s largest and most successful event of its kind.

There were more than 100 exhibitors at this year’s Townsville Expo.

The Mackay Expo is being held this weekend, May 24-26, at the Mackay Showgrounds.
