Calling all our characters

WESTERN Downs Regional Council is inviting the community to share the rich stories of our local characters, as well as have their say on the type of events they would like to see hosted in our region as part of the council's new tourism strategy.

The Regional Events Survey, found on council's website, provides residents the opportunity to voice their opinions on events they would like to see across the region in order to optimise tourism opportunities, unique experiences and major events.

Councillor Donna Ashurst encourages residents to have their say on the potential future events in our communities.

"The Western Downs is known for our diverse and vibrant events,” Cr Ashurst said.

"We want to continue to provide events right across our region, both for our residents to enjoy and to attract visitors from near and far.

"We've always had such fantastic support from our community when it comes to our regional events, so we want to know what our community wants to see from the Western Downs.

"Whether it be festivals or concerts, foodie experiences or something for the whole family, we want to hear from you.”

Cr Ashurst also believes that our local faces are the best representatives of our region, and their stories deserve to be shared.
