Region ready to welcome Kiwi visitors

Posted: 3pm 08 Apr 2021

Tourism operators in the Moreton Bay Region are perfectly poised to welcome visitors from New Zealand when the trans-Tasman travel bubble starts on April 19. From the sandy beaches of Bribie Island to lush hinterland townships and out to Redcliffe and the pristine waters of Moreton Bay, they are ready.

Excitement is building among tourism and accommodation operators, following news this week of a travel bubble between Australia and New Zealand. It will mean travellers won’t need to quarantine on arrival or upon their return.

With more than 20,000 New-Zealand-born residents calling the Moreton Bay Region home, many of our friends across the ditch already know what’s on offer in this part of the world.

Local businesses are hoping they will come to visit family and friends and explore the region while they’re here.

Mayor Peter Flannery says the Moreton Bay Region is a home away from home for New Zealanders.

“With so many Kiwis already calling this region home, it makes perfect sense for their friends and family to jump on a jet and say hello for a week or weekend,” Mayor Flannery says.

“We’re only a short drive from the Brisbane International Airport and we have everything from pristine beaches and breathtaking hinterland to galleries, museums and of course Moreton Bay bugs. So I urge all the local New Zealanders to pick up your phones and let your relatives how great Moreton Bay Region is to visit.

“Moreton Bay Region tourism operators have been eagerly waiting for the New Zealand travel bubble to reopen, so they’re guaranteed a great holiday here.”

Moreton Bay Region Industry and Tourism Chairman Shane Newcombe says there’s so much to see and do in the region.

“The Moreton Bay Region offers an enviable diversity just minutes away from the heart of Brisbane and Brisbane Airport. We are perfectly positioned to welcome visitors looking to base themselves here for an extended stay, or those popping in for a few days on their way to other destinations in the state,” Mr Newcombe says.

“And there’s a huge range of experiences to suit visitors of all ages with everything from world-class natural attractions, experiences on the water and in the hinterland, fine dining, and seafood unique to this part of the world.”

Want some inspiration?

The team at Visit Moreton Bay Region has done the hard work for you, compiling a range of itineraries and guides to suit visitors of all ages and interests.

Check out the Moreton Bay Bucket List, which includes a scenic flight to Ocean View, jet ski thrills on Pumicestone Passage, horseback winery tours, whale watching, heritage tours and arts trails.

Choose from itineraries for golf lovers, a girls’ weekend, families on a budget, outdoor adventures, hinterland escapes and many more.

The team has also identified the best things to see and do in Bribie Island, Redcliffe, Samford, Woodford and Dayboro.

For nature-lovers, there’s a plethora of natural attractions to choose from including Northbrook Gorges, Mount Glorious and Jollys Lookout.

What are you waiting for?

With the trans-Tasman travel bubble starting from April 19, there’s no better time to book your flight, lock in your accommodation and come on over for a stay in the Moreton Bay Region to remember.
