Mayor John Brent joined Minister for Tourism and Major Events Jann Stuckey and the mayors of Brisbane, Ipswich, Moreton Bay, Redlands, Somerset, Logan and Lockyer Valley last week to launch the Give Me Brisbane Any Day campaign.
“For tourism in the Scenic Rim, this is about reinforcing the fact Brisbane is the gateway to the many attractions of the wider South East region,” Cr Brent says.
“Any day in Brisbane can also involve a visit to the Scenic Rim, in fact, almost half the visitation to this region can be attributed to day trippers travelling from areas such as Brisbane and the Gold Coast. On average more than 750,000 people visit the Scenic Rim annually as part of a daytrip.
“Whether they are tourists or locals, they can reach the Scenic Rim within an hour, spend the day exploring the wonders of this great region, and be back at their hotel or home before evening.
“The campaign is an excellent fit for this key tourism market which is why we have joined forces with other local councils to highlight the attractions of our respective regions.”
Visitors to the Scenic Rim are being encouraged to share their experiences by using the hashtags #brisbaneanyday and #scenicrim.
