The Noosa Edition #8 highlights - 18 December 2019

All-new in-room Noosa compendium arrives this week

Accommodation managers will receive a visit from Tourism Noosa this week with a beautiful pre-Christmas gift – copies of our new in-room compendium, a high quality coffee table publication showcasing the best of Noosa to visitors. We’ll be delivering complimentary copies so every guest room will have a copy in time for the busy holiday season.

The publication features new photos and essential information about Noosa’s villages, dining, natural beauty, art and culture, wellness, shopping, experiences, events and environment. It’s printed on high quality, environmentally sustainable stock, in line with our commitment to sustainable business practices.

Accommodation managers will also be able to insert their own customised information printed on a template that can be placed in the specially designed front cover of the compendium.

The Noosa compendium will also be available for sale at the new Noosa Inspiration Centre in Hastings Street for anyone who wants to take home their own Noosa keepsake.

Tourism Noosa on the European stage

Tourism Noosa recently took to the European stage, with our International Marketing Manager Vynka Hutton travelling to Eurupe and the UK on a trade mission where she met with hundreds of product managers, and wholesale and retail travel trade to update them about the latest news from Noosa. The travel trade are vital in reaching our future international visitors who generally stay 3-5 nights and love to spend on experiences.

Vynka organised dedicated Noosa sales calls in the UK, then joined Queensland on Tour EU and Queensland on Tour UK with Tourism & Events Queensland. Apart from the many face-to-face meetings, she also conducted intense training across the UK, Germany, France and Austria, where Noosa is increasingly seen as a must-visit on holiday itineraries.

Fraser Coast Tourism & Events, Tasman Venture and Kingfisher Bay Resort joined TN in flying the South East Queensland flag to promote Australia's Nature Coast to these markets.
