Tourism and the Visitor Centre

Tourism Plan - Community Consultation Workshops

Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council is developing a unifying vision for tourism in the region and you are invited to participate. Community Consultation Workshops will be held in Queanbeyan, Bungendore and Braidwood where you can contribute your ideas and aspirations on how our destination can be more attractive to target markets, facilitate an increase in visitor numbers and grow the contribution to the visitor economy in the region. The Tourism Plan will identify strategies in an action plan that will provide clear guidance on priorities in the short, medium and long term regarding such things as visitor services, target marketing, experience and product development, destination development, packaging and partnership opportunities. The consultants Destination Marketing Store (DMS) have been engaged to develop the Tourism Plan and facilitate the community consultation.

This is a great opportunity for you to be involved in this significant exercise and your input will be greatly valued.

Registration is required and seats are limited. So register early!

Queanbeyan prides itself on being a community with Country Living City Benefits. Located in a snug valley, near the junction of the Queanbeyan and Molonglo rivers, Queanbeyan’s geography has lent itself to being an ideal place for travellers to stop, meet and settle. Queanbeyan’s proximity to Canberra, the Snowy Mountains, NSW South Coast and the historic villages of Bungendore, Braidwood and Captains Flat makes it a destination in itself.
