Southern Downs tourism just a click away

VISITORS and Southern Downs residents will soon have the entire region at their fingertips with the launch of Destination Southern Downs' new website.

The new website is set to be launched alongside the new visitor's information guide later this month, and will include a bookings section for events, accommodation and tours all in the one location.

Destination Southern Downs representative Mikey Dwan said the new bookings section of the website had been an ongoing project for the last seven months.

"The website has been in play since the start of the implementation program in July," he said.

"We always knew what we wanted with the website and it's great to see it nearing completion."

The bookings section will be aimed at both residents and visitors to the region.

"We wanted to provide a bookable service to our members and the general public to book accommodation, events and tours," he said.

"It's a great chance for locals to see what the region has on offer, and to have it all in one central place.

"It makes it easier for visitors and residents to package up deals."

Mr Dwan said the website would encourage more residents to become part of the Destination Southern Downs membership program.

"The website will feature all of the region's attractions," he said.

"Members will get a more prominent listing and hopefully encourage more people to come on board."

The website is due to go live by the end of the month.
