Jetstar was in town this week talking to interested parties about the tourist potential that will come when the first jet lands at the airport in July.
This week also saw a number of local businesses get together to start encouraging people to act as ambassadors for this wonderful town. What better people to advertise the wonders of Hervey Bay than the people who actually live here.
The time to start doing that is now so that the town isn’t caught flat-footed when the first jet comes in.
And while you’re thinking about the wonderful things here in the Bay that tourists can do what have you seen of the local attractions?
Have you taken the time to get out and enjoy Hervey Bay? When was the last time you walked on the beach? When was the last time you enjoyed a cup of coffee at one of the cafes down on the Esplanade?
This town has some incredible things to offer but you won’t find or enjoy any of them if you stay at home. Even if transport is a problem the local clubs all have courtesy buses and there is nothing quite like a light lunch out on the deck at the Boat Club.
