Taking the Cassowary Coast on the road
Cassowary Coast Regional Council’s travelling information van is touring Queensland Caravan and Camping Expos. The‘I-VAN’ will promote the Cassowary Coast as the number one destination for nature and adventure action.
The I-VAN and support team are attending Expos from Cairns to Mackay this month, helping travellers to plan their next holiday amongst the pristine natural wonders of the Cassowary Coast including spectacular islands, reefs, beaches and ancient rainforests.
Division Six Councillor and Economic Development and Tourism portfolio holder Kylie Farinelli said the Cassowary Coast is emerging as an adventure destination with world-class natural experiences as well as events and it is important that neighbouring areas know what we have on offer.
“We encourage visitors at the Expos to come and talk with the I-VAN team who have extensive knowledge on the region and can offer local insights and tips into planning your next holiday.
“There are a number of resources available at the I-VAN including the colourful list of ‘102 Things to Do’ on the Cassowary Coast’, a montage of sites, adventures and hidden gems to explore. Not to mention an amazing competition to enter with the major prize including either two nights at the Kurrimine Beach King Reef Resort, or two nights at Castaways Resort and Spa, Mission Beach.
“I-VAN is also promoting a number of sporting and community events, encouraging residents from Townsville, Cairns, Mackay and surrounding areas to get involved in ‘Adventure August’ as either a participant or spectator,” Councillor Farinelli said.
I-VAN’s next stop is the Mackay Expo being held at the Mackay Showgrounds from 21 and 23 May. Mackay locals and travellers are encouraged to attend, say hello and plan their number one ‘Thing to Do’ in the Cassowary Coast. Tickets are available for the expo at https://mackayexpo.com.au/.
