It is with great pleasure that our Network of Tourism Touchscreens continues to expand and play an important role in the domestic tourism recovery.
My family spent some quality time on the road in NSW this last School holidays and we look forward to getting into the other States including QLD, Tasmania and South Australia now that border restrictions have eased coming into the Christmas holiday period. It has been a long tough winter however we can all be so thankful that as a nation we are so much more united and COVID free compared to many others. Our main client base is regional and in NSW residents from the major cities Canberra, Sydney, and Newcastle are literally spilling out into Regional NSW.
The efforts of Perth, Brisbane, Hobart and Adelaide residents have assisted their respective States get through this period as well. Travelling up the Newell with direct feedback from many of our operators, and Visitor Information Centres this holiday period everywhere was booked out. You could not get two nights in a row at Dubbo, and smaller centres like Lightning Ridge were totally booked as were all practically all National Parks operating off a smaller capacity.
It was no different coming down the New England through Tamworth, and the fabulous Mid North Coast. We hope that clients of ours for over 20 years like Coffs Harbour Clog Barn pictured with owner John Hartsuyker and daughter Alison Brookes as well as Coffs Dolphin Marine Conservation Park and many others continue to see the numbers return and bookings swell to the allowed capacity. Two words of advice… book early.
